Exploration and mining

At Niche, we understand the importance of the resources sector to our every day way of life.

The best way that an environmental and heritage consultancy such as Niche can support you and the resources industry is to provide prompt, accurate advice, particularly when that advice.  We value our clients’ needs and beleive that early and accurate advice is the key to good client relationships, even when that advice may require the client to reconsider their initial plans.

Our expert team has a strong track record in delivering high quality advice to the mining and exploration industries.

At Niche, we are critically aware that we represent you and your business when we are working in the community. Very often our team is first on the ground when working on exploration programs or greenfield developments. We will work with you to develop a community interaction plan because we understand that your ‘social license’ to operate in any region of Australia is as important as your statutory planning approvals.

  • Pre-feasibility assessments of greenfield sites
