WAIHI GOLDMINE - OCEANAGOLD
Between 2017 and 2020, we completed the tailing's dam lifts for Oceana Gold at the Waihi gold mine.
Taking six months to complete in bad weather, just over 100,000 bcm of constructed fill was used, including mixing lime with the material to counter acidity. It’s a complex process but we complied with all consents to finish the job to the client’s satisfaction.
We have since been invited back to the goldmine to continue works on lifting the tailing's dam and will commence work early 2022.
