Objective: Recovery of High Grade Gold Ore.
This challenging project involved recovering high grade gold ore from the highwall of a completed, mined-out open pit in an area that was previously inaccessible to equipment. Our crew and equipment was airlifted by helicopter and crane to the worksite, on an existing bench in the open pit. Daily access was accomplished by rappelling down the highwall. Our crew safely and efficiently completed rock slope stabilization, precision drilling and controlled blasting operations to facilitate recovery of the high grade ore.
