Jameson Resources has authorized preliminary design engineering for the Crown Mountain Coking Coal project. Spoil and refuse disposal techniques are an important component of open-pit mining, as they affect many facets of the environment including wildlife habitat, water quality and aquatic life. Jameson has selected two leading expert firms in this subject. SRK Consulting of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Enviromin Inc. of Bozeman, Montana, will team with SRK. Jameson said Enviromin has particularly valuable skills regarding successful mitigation of water quality issues related to selenium associated with open-pit mining.
