  • (MSHA) Mining Safety & Health Administration

  • Colorado Division of Wildlife

Do I need a mining permit?

This depends upon your proposed operations and is generally driven by surface acreage disturbance, claim specific environmental concerns, duration and frequency of operation, equipment type, and volume of material moved.


How much would it potentially cost for you to write my Notice of Intent (NOI) level disturbance for me?

While this does vary from project to project; typically to draft and submit a Notice of Intent to the Forest Service, the cost starts at 8,500 USD.

What States Do You Work In?
I write permits across the Western USA with the bulk of permits being written for clients within Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Why budget for mining permits?

No matter what state you own a claim in the reality is that permitting can make or break your operation.

Miners looking to take their projects from recreationally based to commercially based operations, whether lode or placer will have to have proper permitting in place before beginning operations.

Not accounting for mining permit costs, timeline of approvals, and other factors break most miners before a single yard of dirt is ever moved.


How much would it potentially cost for you to write a Plan of Operations (POO) level of disturbance for me?

The Plan of Operations is very complex with numerous other permits and regulatory agencies unavoidably attached to the permit in order to complete the plan in its full capacity. A Plan of Operations permit may typically take multiple years to get completed and the cost starts at 75,000 USD depending on the complexity, location, and scope of the project.

I just want to mine and don't want to deal with permitting headaches, can you help?

The short answer is yes!
Our turnkey permit packages remove the headache and workload from your plate and we can work on your behalf to get the results you desire.  

In fact, most of our consulting work revolves around our turnkey permit package solutions and most clients prefer to outsource the entire permitting process.

I own a mining claim and need advice on prospecting the claim, can you point me in the right direction?

Prospecting and exploration are an intrinsic part of the core values and expertise behind Gunnison Gold Prospecting Company.  We will travel to anywhere in the country to conduct a thorough examination of your claim.  

Additionally, we have the ability to drill both alluvial auger holes for placer claims, and diamond tipped core drills for lode claims.
