Sometimes, while we are focused on getting another job done, we get a call indicating that one of our projects just received some local, national, or international recognition. Who would have ever thought?
Excellence in Surface Coal Mining and Reclamation National Award, presented in 2003 by the U.S. Department of Interior, Office of Surface Mining to Castle Gate Holding Company. EarthFax Engineering provided reclamation design and construction quality control services on this project, which was completed at underground coal mining operations in east-central Utah.
