MENCON has extensive experience in providing diverse yet focused engineering support to the mining industry. The list below is representative of the type of work we perform:

Mine Planning and Design: Mencon has been involved in several successful projects:

  • Mencon played a lead role in the feasibility analysis, planning, construction, and operation of one of the newest underground coal mines in the United States.

  • Several operators have relied on Mencon to prepare mining plans and cost analyses of new or proposed operations. This work has included new mines, mine expansions, and new mining methods (mobile roof supports, highwall mining, etc).

  • Internationally, Mencon has provided detailed analysis and direction for a major mine expansion project in Australia.

Feasibility Studies: Mencon has participated in several feasibility studies, including:

  • Evaluation of a major underground mine expansion for an Australian longwall operator.

  • Establishing a world-class longwall facility at a high-ratio surface mine in the southwestern United States.

  • Evaluation and mine design for a multi-seam longwall operation in the western United States.

  • Permitting and preliminary mine design for the first potential underground coal mine in Alaska since the 1960s.

Engineering Support: We have provided specialized services, such as:

  • BLM Royalty Rate reduction applications: Mencon has prepared and successfully achieved significant reductions in the BLM royalty on western coal.

  • Permits/Regulatory Plans: We have prepared and received approval for Resource Recovery and Protection (R2P2) plans, exploration licenses, mine permits, and several other actions that required close cooperation with regulatory agencies.

  • Ventilation System Analysis, Simulation, and Design: Mencon has performed ventilation surveys, and completed extensive ventilation system simulation, analysis, and design at major mines in the United States and abroad.

  • Comprehensive Mine Planning: We have provided mine planning, equipment selection and specification, mine systems design, infrastructure design, and other related services to major mining operations.

  • As PEs, we inspect and certify environmental structures including dams, ponds, refuse piles, and impoundments.

  • Environmental Audits.


Professional Engineering: Mencon personnel are Registered Professional Engineers in all the major mining states. We provide only the highest quality engineering services, and unlike many others, our work product is fully insured (professional liability, E&O, etc).
