Erick Weiland

Applied Geochemistry for Today’s Challenges

An internationally respected geochemist with over 30 years of professional experience and technical knowledge across multiple disciplines, Mr. Weiland has successfully completed a wide variety of projects throughout many countries through the applied use of sound geological and geochemical principals, methods, and interpretation.
Expertise includes: Mining/mineral geochemistry, rock/waste characterization, water quality and soil remediation investigations, material characterization, geochemical evaluation of surface water, groundwater, and mineral interactions, and assessing the acid generation potential (acid rock drainage) with associated leaching of hazardous constituents from natural materials.  He is an expert in geochemistry supporting engineering/environmental projects including site characterization, feasibility studies, permitting, remediation, water quality, soil remediation, evaluation of acid mine drainage, environmental impact assessments, waste rock dumps and tailings dam engineering/design, and mine closure activities. Mr. Weiland has successfully designed, implemented, and evaluated field and laboratory investigations related to geochemical processes in the surface and sub-surface environments.
Projects include: Attaining and maintaining compliance with federal and state permits; environmental assessment, monitoring and cleanup; CERCLA emergency clean-up actions; risk assessment; fate and transport analysis of metals and non-metals within the natural environment; hydrological modeling; geochemical and contaminant transport modeling; expert witness testimony, and environmental analysis.
