Resources

A successful consultancy must have the numbers and discipline diversity in professional staff to address the needs of each assignment. BOYD’s staff is both experienced and embodies the team effort.

For an engineering consultant organization to operate effectively, its engineers, geologists, and technicians require a host of sophisticated technical resources.

While client-specific data remain strictly confidential, access to our proven mining solutions enables BOYD mining professionals to begin every new project well along the learning curve. Our work history includes work in all of the major coal fields in the United States, as well as in over sixty countries worldwide. This knowledge provides an accelerated start to new projects and, most importantly, provides a baseline to assess existing or proposed mines against mining conditions, performance, and the history of competing operations.

Complementing these project reports is a mining reference library with over 17,000 volumes. Our Information Specialist collects and maintains a variety of publications and industry databases devoted exclusively to coal, minerals, mining, and environmental issues, and to related industries such as electric power generation.

As a premier mining consultant, we have technologically-advanced computers and engineering facilities; computer-aided design, GIS capability, mapping, database and graphics systems; and advanced engineering applications software:
