Mining & Minerals

Industrial and mining clients have long appreciated the economy and durability of Reinforced Earth® products. The low cost and high load carrying capability of TerraTrel® walls have made their economy second to none for the short design life structures often required by mining companies.

Tunnels and Overpasses

Techspan® precast arches have been used for conveyor overpasses and surge pile loadout tunnels.

Dump Walls

Dump walls up to 25 metres high have been constructed in Canada to support 400-Ton payload trucks dumping from the edge of the wall.

Slot Storage

Reinforced Earth Slope Wall technology provides storage structures for bulk material handling. Typical structures include octagonal "glory holes" or slots. Dozens of such structures exist in Canada and abroad for coal storage from 10,000 to 100,000 tonnes and up to heights of 30 metres.

Reinforced Earth® can be used to create some of the world's highest unloading docks, as well as:
- Storage silos and hoppers for recovering coal and iron ore
- Feed units

- Containment bunds

- Reservoirs for mining waste

- Dust containment within the storage facilities
