Resource projects usually require numerous permits or licenses that allow the construction and operation to lawfully proceed. In many jurisdictions, these permits can be issued only after the project has successfully completed a review of an environmental and social impact assessment. Permit requirements rely on detailed engineering in order to specify environmental controls and comply with local laws and company commitments. Without proper understanding of project engineering, permit application processes can be lengthy, with potentially serious consequences.
