Hansen, Allen & Luce (HAL) was recently asked to perform hydrogeologic and water right studies related to the development of water sources for a mining entity in Utah and Nevada.
The Utah investigation, completed in November 2018, was centered approximately 20 miles north-northeast of Wendover in Pilot Valley. The Nevada investigation, currently underway, is located approximately 190 miles north of Las Vegas in Railroad Valley.
Both studies are investigating mineral resource development on the salt flats and the potential impact to existing water rights located along the playa margins and adjacent mountain systems.
The two projects add to HAL’s portfolio of mining and industrial work.
