Landowners and developers need to be fully aware of potential issues with mining, and GRM has a specialist team with extensive experience of coal mining and mining in general.
Coal Mining Investigations
Following completion of a Coal Mining Risk Assessment (CMRA), an intrusive investigation may be required to confirm risks posed to the development and design remedial options.
GRM can carry out these investigations and assessments of risks posed by shallow mine workings.
For investigations that involve abandoned mine works it is usual to drill a series of rotary probe holes to intersect potential mine workings. Coal Authority permission is required to undertake this work, and GRM is qualified to manage this whole process and act as the official consultant.
