Permitting

AES can help secure the required permits for coal, geothermal and mineral exploration in Alaska.

We have extensive experience complying with the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act, which includes geology, hydrology, fish and game, soil, vegetation, air, land use, and cultural resources.

AES has filed Alaska Hardrock Exploration Applications (the multi-agency permit application that replaces the APMA) for mineral and quarry stone exploration programs. We have worked with the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission to permit geothermal and underground coal gasification exploration drilling.

Our permitting experience includes:

• Alaska Hardrock Exploration Applications (Alaska Department of Natural Resources)
• Coal exploration (federal and state agencies)
• Land Use (Alaska Department of Natural Resources)
• Safety Plans (Mine Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor)
• Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation)
• Temporary Camps (Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation)
• Wastewater Discharge (Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation)
• Wetlands (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers)
• Wildlife Habitat (Alaska Department of Fish & Game)

“So far the drillers have averaged 100 ft a day which is better than I have experienced on any other projects in this part of the Alaska Range. Your guys have gone to great lengths to maximize recovery in the mineralized structures.” Sam Dashevsky, Northern Associates
