ERA Tailings Storage Facility Dam Wall Lift Phase 3 Earthworks
Tailings Storage Facility Dam Wall Lift
Mine Site Construction Services (MSCS) were contracted by Energy Resources Australia (ERA) to provide civil construction works at their Ranger Uranium site in Jabiru in Q3 & 4 of 2011.
The tailings storage dam wall lift required crushing and screening services to produce four different grades of construction material, all of which was sourced from the clients waste dumps.
Due to the unique environment at the site and the safety implications associated with ERA's primary resource, MSCS ensured that the Radiation Management plan and the regular cleaning of all HV and LV plant equipment was adhered to throughout the contract.
