MINING

Contour Mining and Construction’s mining division is anchored on experience. Our team has worked in the clay mining, metals mining and the quarrying industries. We have the ability to guide your project from bid day to closure. Being constrained to a certain fleet of equipment can cause your project’s cost to be elevated. We employ application specific fleets of equipment, matched to your site’s conditions, schedule and geology. Our relationships with various equipment manufacturers allow us to maximize production, lower cost / yard and mobilize immediately.

Overburden / Intraburden Removal

Quarries, kaolin mines, sand pits and even metal mines are our areas of expertise. Orchestrating a fleet, selected specifically for the geology and constraints of the project, allow Contour Mining to facilitate, ‘Efficiency in Motion.’ Our crews are MSHA Part 48-B certified and industry veterans. We attack the most demanding schedules and materials to keep your mine operational and its reserves open.

Contract Mining

During times of economic strife, the overhead of a quarrying or mining operation can be daunting. This is where Contour Mining can set your budgets on cruise control and your plant on auto pilot. By utilizing Contour for your contract mining, the overhead of your mobile fleet and its crew can be minimalized. Fluctuations in product demand can sever budgets. Let Contour take on the responsibility, with the capability to move from site to site, utilizing one crew for your plant operation.

Reclamation

Closing a mine site can be a capital intensive venture. What will the costs be? What is the plan? Contour Mining and Construction delivers the capability to provide design / build reclamation plans. Allow us to optimize the site, moving the least amount of material to restore your site to pre-mining conditions. We all know that reclamation is bottom line cost, let Contour Mining lower that cost and deliver a project of world class standards.
