The mining field covers a variety of disciplines that extend beyond geology and the extraction of resources. The ability to safely and economically produce coal, metals, and minerals requires an understanding of engineering, construction, business management, strategic planning, financial analysis, markets, and more.
BOYD can draw upon our diverse experience to address broad topics such as reserve estimations, valuations, industry standards, and competitive positions. Likewise, we are frequently called upon to assist in litigation matters focused upon highly specialized topics within particular segments of the coal and minerals industry: specific mining techniques, geological interpretations, quality analyses, equipment parameters, and more. In situations where BOYD does not have the precise skill sets required, we can often direct inquiries to other professionals within the industry.
