Safe, responsible and efficient

Banks Mining has restored every surface mine we have ever worked. 

To date Banks Mining has worked and restored over 110 surface coal mines since the business was started in 1976. We have 40 years experience in the industry and our development with care approach sets us apart from other developers.

We have delivered many benefits to local communities through our mine restoration schemes, including community parks, nature reserves, fishing ponds, restoration of historic landscapes and the world famous Northumberlandia - ”The Lady of the North”.  See:

Our dedicated restoration design and management professionals manage a team of over 40 restoration contractors from across northern England and Scotland.  They work together to ensure that our newly restored sites benefit from a five year period of “aftercare” to ensure that we leave an improved environment and sustainable legacy for the local community.
