Featured Mining Projects
Leeville Paste Plant
SM&RC provided structural engineering and construction support services to Paterson & Cooke for the project. SM&RC prepared foundation designs for the Paste Plant Building, reclaim/fresh water tank, tailings/aggregate conveyor, tailings/aggregate surge bin and retaining wall, materials silos, generator, transformer, and material heater plant. The work also included the design of above ground steel supports and underground steel supports for the paste plant piping. Construction phase services included performing site visits, reviewing submittals, responding to RFIs and providing record drawings for the project structures.
Montana Exploradora De Guatamela, S.A.
SM&RC was responsible for the project tailings dam decant structure. The project involved designing a cast-in-place concrete decant structure running up the slope of the tailings pond with a low level outlet structure through the dam and an energy dissipation structure downstream of the dam. The project also included the design and detailing of a remotely removable steel decant structure cover and the design of a rolling trash rack along the 100 meter structure.
Muriate Storage Building No. 5
The project involved performing a structural conditions assessment of the existing salt storage building. The steel building was 540 feet long and had an arch span of 150 feet with a maximum height above the ground of 47 feet. The steel structure was supported on a continuous multi buttress concrete spread footing. The superstructure supported several overhead salt feed conveyors and the foundation had several below grade conveyors.
Morenci Arizona Tailings Launder Repairs
The project involved the development of concrete repairs for the existing launder concrete channel. The 4.5 foot wide by 4.5 foot deep channel was approximately 2.5 miles long. Our work included performing a site observation visit to inspect and document the condition of the existing channel along with site visits during construction to observe the repairs. Our work also included designing several new intersection connection structures for the existing launder.
