How We Work

All sites are different but the earlier that Harland Resources Ltd can be involved in the project, the better,  if only to carry out an initial cost-free recommendation, regarding the suitability of the site for Prior Extraction. This outstanding commitment to quality is instilled in everything we do. This gives our clients the confidence, satisfaction and peace of mind that all their projects will be managed safely, efficiently and cost effectively.
