Project Description

The mining industry requires large and heavily loaded structures, in sometimes isolated, vast areas. Variable-geometry walls and soil stabilization is common in the applications. The excellent adaptability of the Reinforced Earth® and TechSpan® technologies mean that they are the ideal solution for meeting the requirements of structures in the mining industry, which need to be capable of withstanding high loads, vibrations and variations in temperature. Reinforced Earth® retaining walls and TechSpan® arches are used in the mining industry for storing material and supporting vehicles and  treatment machinery, as well as for other applications relating to the transportation, treatment and exploitation of the extracted material. The versatility of Reinforced Earth® and especially the facing technologies ensures that the specific requirements for such structures can be met. The technologies are sufficiently varied to produce the required geometry (face inclination, straight or curved alignment) by offering concrete panels, semi-elliptical steel panels or welded wire mesh. The choice of facing also depends on the structure’s required service life and factors such as site and mine location.

Benefits

Extreme load bearing capacity

Extreme load bearing capacity

Reinforced Earth® structures have extreme load bearing capacity and are resistant to vibrations, making them them ideal for supporting the live loads of heavy industrial vehicles and demanding activities, such as crushing and screening.

Flexibility

Flexibility

Reinforced Earth®structures can be built to very tall heights, over large surfaces, and are flexible to accommodate various geometrical requirements, such as sloped surfaces, and straight or curved alignments, making it a great solution for dump walls, among other applications.

Easy and quick installation

Easy and quick installation

Our structures are easy and quick to install. Offering a predictable installation requiring little space, they are an ideal choice on active mining sites, where little disruption to activities can be tolerated.
