Quarries & Mining

Fox Rothschild attorneys have helped mining clients address the challenges that arise in procuring state permits and local zoning entitlements for both major quarry expansions and new greenfield quarry development.

Few, if any, infrastructure projects can be constructed without aggregate, asphalt, and/or concrete. The quarries from which aggregate is mined are thus essential elements to the growth of any area. But because they largely operate below the surrounding surface and are often hidden behind wide buffers and tall berms, a challenge is educating decision-makers about the care with which they are run, the limitations on where they can be located, and their vital role in our economy.

We have a good working knowledge of the industry and experience in both the administrative arena and the courtroom to advance the interests of our mining clients.
