NewBridge Services monitors mine sites bonded through Cumberland Surety to ensure compliance with reclamation requirements and identify any potential operational issues that may eventually lead to surety losses developing. With more than 200 years of direct experience in mining reclamation operations under applicable state and federal laws, NewBridge’s expertise is unequaled in the United States.

NewBridge also develops and manages large reclamation workout programs. The company functions as a program architect, consultant, and/or general contractor in situations where significant reclamation obligations need resolution to allow acquisition, merger, or bankruptcy

Over the past 12 years, NewBridge has engineered solutions for a variety of projects that required resolution to problematic reclamation obligations. 

NewBridge also has performed formal analyses of operator’s exposure for Chas Coal, Appalachian Fuels, Trinity Coal, and Utica Insurance Company. The reports proved instrumental to the resolution of questions around sale, merger and reclamation obligations.
