Opponents fight mining and industrial operations based on fear
Until this fear of the unknown is addressed, the benefits of jobs, tax revenue, and economic stimulus will fall on deaf ears. We demystify complex processes and present them simply, while telling your pro-growth, environmental story. Davies has booked successes in turning the public tide to gain permits for uranium, gold, silver, copper, frack sands, and industrial mineral sites.
The equation of earning public support
Asphalt Plant Stirs Fears
An asphalt plant is not the type of project to elicit a lot of vocal support. In fact communities, communities generally unite in opposition.
Dramatic Turnaround at Open Pit Mine
When Davies took charge of community relations our client's mine proposal was swamped in controversy.
"Davies uncovered misunderstandings and found the best messages and means to meet and talk with people in our small community, allowing us to make new friends, build a movement of support, and overwhelm the naysayers — resulting in a timely approval of an extension and expansion for our mine. Not only did Davies get how to motivate supporters, they literally understood the opponents next move, before they made them."
Alfred Kuenkel, Corporate Communications
"Securing a mining permit is fraught with challenges, especially overcoming public and environmentalist opposition. How the public perceives a mining proposal sets the agenda of debate for the public review and permitting process.
Davies’ wealth of knowledge, expertise, and experience in shaping public opinion and organizing public support for mining makes them an invaluable part of a permitting team. They greatly enhance your ability to secure permits in a timely manner."
