Strip mining expert witnesses are often sought out for cases involving the mining industry, as strip mining refers to the process of unearthing underground materials by removing long strips of minerals, soil, rock, or other such elements. Strip mining expert consulting may provide valuable insight for litigation involving such areas as civil engineering, project management, coal mining, construction management, the mining and minerals industry, environmental geology, mine exploration, hydrogeology, hazardous material characterization and remediation, engineering geology, industrial workplaces, tunneling, explosives, the petrochemical and refining fields, petroleum, the oil and gas industry, mechanical engineering, or toxicology, each of which may be involved with a lawsuit related to strip mining.
Strip mining experts must be knowledgeable with occupation safety and health (OSHA), which is important to any mining-related procedures, as is underground safety, mechanical safety, construction safety, and other important precautions, as violating any type of safety rules and regulations may lead to injuries or health-related accidents, as well as grounds for possible lawsuits.
Strip mining expert witnesses may also have experience with handling hazardous materials and hazardous waste, grading, slopes, soil and water contamination, metallurgy, erosion, landslides, floodplains, drainage, contract management, land development, cost estimating, and other areas related to mining operations.
