Do you know what lies beneath the surface?

PP Mining

Naturally when you think of mining this is associated with coal, however, there were many more reasons why mining was such a big industry. Other materials and precious metals were extracted across the UK in large quantities and for long periods of time.

Furthermore, ground stability issues can arise as a result of other factors not associated with mining. For example, instability and subsidence can be caused after heavy rainfall events. Many search reports nowadays will advise on coal, non-coal mining and other ground issues.

Sometimes the consequences of past activities can take a long time to show. Therefore, it is important to understand the historic use of the land your client is purchasing. Our built in hazard alerts make it easier for you to know areas of potential risk.
