Mine Environmental Services

Olympus’ team of engineers, geologists, and field service staff is ideally suited to undertake mine reclamation projects.

Abandoned and inactive mine and mill sites document a heritage rich in mineral extraction in Montana, Idaho, and surrounding states. These sites also present a variety of challenges, including physical and environmental hazardous mine openings, dangerous highwalls, and dilapidated structures. Environmental hazards include heavy metal impacts to soil, surface water, sediment, and groundwater.

We provide assessment services for the characterization of mine waste sites and use the characterization data in the preparation of feasibility studies and remedial options for our clients in Montana, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, Oregon, and surrounding states. Our engineers and geologists use the selected remedial option to design the reclamation project, with construction completed by our field services staff or qualified subcontractors.

“We worked with Olympus to demolish, dispose, and backfill two buildings containing hazardous materials. Olympus’ crew was receptive to our requests, adapted to changing site conditions, suggested ways to increase efficiency, and didn’t sway from their proposed cost. Together we changed the site from dilapidated hazardous buildings to a clean construction-ready property.”

“Olympus Technical Services won a major demolition bid with FCEDA. The bid was fair and the work started on time and finished in advance of our deadline. It was a difficult job with several unknowns that caused delays, change orders, and equipment breakdowns. Throughout, the team from Olympus was professional, flexible, and made sound recommendations. They were great partners on a difficult project. Because of this experience, we have recommended them to many of our partners.”
