Metals and Mining


Whether your mining activity is incidental to other site development, such as a temporary borrow pit, or full scale mining of soil, sand, clays including kaolin, or rock, Hull Barrett can assist you. Operating a mine site requires not only State level regulatory permitting expertise, but also local zoning and licensing knowledge, and business planning expertise. Hull Barrett has attorneys with the proper mix of knowledge and experience to keep your project on track, and we can step in to assist if regulators or third parties call your practices into question.
