We have decades of experience serving mining clients in the areas of feasibility investigations, permitting, compliance, water supply development, and monitoring.
With a client list that includes most of the major domestic and international mining entities, M&A is a global leader in the field of mining hydrogeology. We offer not only traditional water supply services but also innovative ways to model dewatering processes, manage operations by deploying customized monitoring tools, and characterize aquifer conditions in deep boreholes under challenging chemical and temperature regimes. M&A’s offices in Santiago de Chile and Lima, Perú, provide a convenient base for much of our South American work, and our domestic mining services are headquartered out of our Tucson office.
Every step of the way, we facilitate positive, productive interactions with regulatory agencies and the public, providing litigation and legal support as necessary.

M&A uses groundwater flow and transport models to project rates of open-pit dewatering and filling at mines as well as regional groundwater impacts.
We analyze satellite imagery to track environmental changes over time at remote mining sites.
Where necessary, M&A provides technical support for settlement negotiations and litigation proceedings, as well as expert witness services and third-party reviews.
M&A uses cutting-edge data acquisition, monitoring, and analytical tools to develop sustainable, high-quality water supplies.
We use decision support systems to effect dewatering / depressurization programs that incorporate mine design constraints.
