Notice: Job Opening Available. A consultant for an aggregates mining company in the Los Angeles area has a urgent need for a individual to address their reclamation activities. The urgency is created by their current Reclamation Manager announcing retirement earlier than expected. Because of the importance of adhering to all local, state, and federal environmental requirements,

The individual needs to be capable of managing and implementing all phases of import (pit run and inert fill) and reclamation within all active and inactive mine operations for surface mining pits while ensuring adherence to all environmental and safety regulations, energy conservation mandates, and social responsibilities. Looking for a long-term solution, this very likely could evolve into a full time employment opportunity for individual selected.
