The PDRI for Mining template addresses complexities specific to new (greenfield) mining projects including considerations for remote locations with limited infrastructure, uncertainty of site conditions, geo-political risk, and environmental constraints.
Mining projects include structures above ground and under ground. In addition, the site often requires development of infrastructure (roads, shelter, utilities, etc.) for workers, and for transportation of materials (railways, pipelines, etc.).
