Minerals Planning

Your minerals resource is your hidden wealth.

Planning for your future will ensure you meet the changing needs and opportunities associated with quarry development. Six West is an independent company providing professional minerals planning and minerals surveying services throughout Northern Ireland and further afield.

We can identify your minerals resource, prepare geological and reserve assessment reports, advise you on the extent, quality and value of minerals reserves. In addition, our consultants can prepare a site-specific development strategy and financial information for potential investors.

Planning for your extraction operations doesn’t simply start and end with the formal submission of a planning application, planning begins with your business development strategy and continues through prospecting into the period of extraction and ending finally with restoration and after use.

Our experienced minerals surveyors working alongside our minerals planning consultants can provide an operator with the complete minerals life cycle package.
