PSG and Terrafirma have teamed up to deliver an in-depth look at Mining Risk to solicitors in the North West Region. This first session in our journey will bring us to theRibby Hall Village in Preston (directions here) on the 21st March. There are 2 CPD hours on offer and the event fulfils A2 of the SRA competence statement.


Terrafirma's unique set of reports are currently taking the conveyancing world by storm. When you hear the word 'mining' you like many others probably instantly think of coal and maybe even tin and clay. There are in fact over 60 minerals and mining risks you should be aware of, potentially causing substantial risk to the built environment, and this information just hasn't been readily available previously.

Now with the experience and knowledge of Terrafirma you can help your client to make an informed decision in the face of mining and mineral extraction risk.

This session is designed to give you a better understanding of what could potentially lie beneath your client's property purchase and the tools you have at your disposal to inform them before it's too late.

Tom Backhouse, expert mining Geologist and Managing Director of Terrafirma will look at:

  • The physical and financial impact of Historical Mineral Extraction
  • The importance of interpretation in Coal Mining Risk Assessment
  • Present mining in the local area
  • Fracking: Fact or Fiction
  • Mineral Planning Permissions and Mines and Minerals on the Title
  • The potential liabilities faced by property professionals
  • Why Terrafirma are now an essential part of the conveyancing process

The session will start at 2pm with registration from 1.30pm. It will conclude at around 4pm. Refreshments are provided.
