WHY USE CC FOR MINING PROJECTS?
CC is uniquely suited for installations in remote mine sites where logistical efficiency is key, and is well suited to use in extreme environments. It has been installed in mining locations with sub-zero temperatures such as northern British Columbia in Canada and at 4000m altitude in the Chilean Andes.
SOME OF THE PEOPLE WE HAVE WORKED WITH
“We’ve used CC on a number of installations across Wales… The speed that we can install it and the fact that it can be laid in the rain means we can get in and out of sites quickly and provide our clients with a cost effective concrete solution in conditions and geographies that would be difficult if not impossible to do with conventional options. I think it’s a great product and would have no hesitation in recommending CC being used on similar sites.”
“The end result is that there would have been an extra zero on the end of the price quote, if we had elected to use Shotcrete.”
“As an engineer, I liked the fact that CC was adaptable to changes in channel shape as we had segments of trapezoidal shape that had to transition to a rectangular shape. The drape characteristic allowed the CC to be placed on a pretty rough surface. Finally, it seems that any future damages to the CC will be easily fixed by patching. This should result in very low maintenance costs.”
“We were very happy with the lagoon lining, this installation will become a reference within the Votorantim Group.”
“Greenside Mine is a former lead mine within the Lake District National Park. It is surrounded by sensitive habitats including Ullswater. With an annual rainfall of over 2500mm per year, we needed to improve surface drainage to prevent the erosion of mining waste and safeguard the environment. With no access to our site by any tracked or wheeled vehicle, we needed something that could be laid by hand but would provide a long-term drainage solution. CC proved to be the ideal product.”
“Throughout the design and construction of the Silkstone project Concrete Canvas provided an excellent level of technical and practical advice and support. Everything went as expected during installation of the canvas. The finished product has provided a sound lining system to the refurbished lagoon and reed bed which will greatly improve the ability to maintain and desludge the scheme in future years.”
