Groundsure Mine Entry Report

The Mine Entry Report (MER) is a follow-up report to the Groundsure CON29M Official Coal Mining Search. Where mine entries (shafts or adits) are identified within 20m of a property, the CON29M recommends that they are investigated further through this interpretive (as opposed to automated) report.

The Mine Entry Report (MER) is a follow-up report to the Groundsure CON29M Official Coal Mining Search. Where mine entries (shafts or adits) are identified within 20m of a property, the CON29M recommends that they are investigated further through this interpretive (as opposed to automated) report.

The MER gives a clear statement on the risk presented by mine entries that have been identified in the vicinity of the property - this is provided by an experienced and qualified consultant from Mining Searches UK.

Many factors can influence the extent to which a mine entry impacts the area around it. This impacted area is known as the ‘zone of influence’. Through investigation using a variety of data sources, expert geologists are able to calculate the zone of influence and assess the specific risk presented by each mine entry. Inputs into this assessment include:

• Coal Authority mine entries data (c.175,000 records)
• Authoritative BGS geology data
• OS MasterMap property extents
• Underground roadway extents from the Coal Authority
• Knowledge and expertise from mining experts
