How does it work?

Our reports are compiled using our in-house mining archive, accumulated over 40 years of reporting and includes various geological, Ordnance Survey, mining plans and charts, plus our own on-site archive as well as any previous site investigation information carried out by ourselves.

Our risk assessments are interpreted by our team of experienced specialists. Clear and concise information is provided and is backed by our £10 million Professional Indemnity Insurance. Our report will include a written section accompanied by a plan extract confirming the property location and showing any relevant mining features.

Our Metalliferous Mining Search provides an interpretive assessment on minerals including alum, arsenic, barium, copper, gold, iron, lead, manganese, ochre, silver, silverlead, tin, tungsten, umber and zinc, along with any current or potential future mining.

If mine workings are identified recommendations are provided to assist in the next steps to mitigate the risk.
