HCI maintains a list of available precious metal producing mines located within the USA. These mines will have standard 43-101 investment reviews and/or geologic reviews with verified sampling. In all cases full due diligence will be performed for our customers before the purchase of any asset. We always welcome outside verification of our findings.
Operations Management of Existing Assets
You are provided with a written Operating Plan. This document is our operating guideline and is filed with the "Mining Safety and Health Administration" (MSHA).
We work on a cost plus basis.
Operational Management of your mine asset is the single most important decision you will make in the optimization of your mine. We bill cost plus against the acutal operating cost of production plus a fixed percentage of the net.
Environmentally Conscious Solutions
When HCI leaves your site, any previously identified environmental issues will be left in better condition than how we found it.
HCI never uses chemicals for extraction of gold, Silver, PGM or REE. Any hazardous chemicals will be identified and HCI will implement a remediation plan that will allow us to neutralize the hazardous material present. Any previously identified issues will be documented and tested before operations start.
Hill Country Industries, Inc. was founded in 2018, but the history of the company started many years before that. Our core management team has been working independently and in collaboration with each other for the past several decades in various modalities of the energy sector. We have worked in the environmental sector doing remediation, worked as Geologist and Landmen, obtained permits, performed drilling, water management, and frac sand operations. We have also managed large projects ($500 million plus) and worked environmentally sensitive areas, all while dealing with local, state, and federal agencies.
Our management team has worked many large-scale projects together. Our management team has many years experience in Gold Mining and mineral extraction. Our Senior Geologist started his career as a gold mine Geologist in the Western United States. Our Chief Engineer worked Placer Mines in Alaska while it was under his family’s control. Our Landman has been working with the Bureau of Land Management for decades obtaining permits, determining mineral rights and right of ways. Its only in the last oil boom did we all move to energy production sector as did many others. Together our management team has 72 years of experience in Placer mining.
