Rosia Montana Gold Mine

Revitalizing a suffering Romanian community

Providing the planning, permitting, and infrastructure engineering for a gold mine in northwest Romania

In 2006, the northwest Romanian community of Rosia Montana was at risk due to poor housing conditions, contaminated drinking water, inadequate medical services, and a lack of employment opportunities. So when Gabriel Resources approached us to design a new gold mine in the region, we knew we had to balance the economic, historical, environmental, and social impacts of the project. 

We collaborated with the client and community to execute this project with a focus on sustainable development. The Rosia Montana Mine would use new technology and modern strategies to reinvigorate the local economy in a responsible way. This included an environmental impact assessment to identify the potential contamination of water, air, and soil with protection against noise and vibration. We developed environmental, waste rock, and water management systems to mitigate potential environmental impacts.

Our engineers provided a detailed design for the dams, roadways, plant site structures, and water pump stations and pipelines at the Rosia Montana Mine. When the mine moves forward it will create 2,340 new construction jobs and encourage economic growth and development in the region. The water supply to the village, polluted by years of uncontrolled mining, will once again be potable and the community will grow with modern infrastructure. Commitment to a shared vision delivered a sustainable plan to develop Rosia Montana.
