Managing Risks: What lies beneath?

To better understand both the physical, financial and legal risks associated with the UK’s extractive industries. An often misunderstood and overlooked environmental risk, past, present and planned mining and mineral extraction poses a variety of risks and/or impacts to all parties within a property/land transaction and with a recent increase in the volume and visibility of mining-related sinkholes, the risks can no longer be avoided.

Learn when, where and how mining and ground risk assessment should be used and learn more about the hidden legacy of UK mineral extraction and how interpretation of data is essential in both understanding and acting upon the potential risks the ground poses.
