Sands Engineering, LLC is uniquely positioned as one of the few engineering firms in Southwest Ohio that has worked on surface mining projects. By working closely with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Mineral Resource Management, we can help you prepare and file annual reports, annual maps, map amendments, geologic data reports, and any other reports for your surface mine. We have also assisted in creating and submitting drawings and reports for new mines. This entails working with county engineers and local zoning officials, as well as the mine owner. In addition to surface mines, the professionals at Sands Engineering, LLC have worked on subsurface mines performing equipment layout, ventilation plans, emergency escape plans, and site grading plans for the spoils from the initial tunneling.
