Training on grouting equipment at mine site

Grouting Equipment On-site Training

Location: Chihuahua, MEXICO
Sector: Mines
Category: Cement Grouting

Description

An international mining company, with operations in Canada, Europe and Latin-America, contacted us to provide specialized training on grouting equipment.

One of our technicians traveled to a mine site, located in northern Mexico, to conduct training in Spanish to their personnel on the maintenance and use of their hydraulic grout plant.

During the training session, our specialist, as well as providing detailed theoretical information, also presented practical instructions on the proper maintenance, operation and safety precautions of the plant.

Additionally, guidelines for the safe operation on high-pressure grouting applications were an important part of the training session

Buried tanks decommissioning

Buried Tanks Decommissioning

Location: Sudbury, ON
Sector: Mines
Category: Cement Grouting

Description

Multiurethanes‘ technical team worked with a consulting engineering company to decommission two large buried tanks located on the Guindon North Dam at the Vale Tailings site in Sudbury, Ontario.

The designed grout mix for filling the tanks was a slag-cement-bentonite mixed in a batching plant set up on site. Our grouting specialists provided technical leadership to deliver 75 cubic meters of bentonite slurry preparation and successfully complete the decommissioning work.

cement grouting for ventilation raise construction

Ventilation Raise Construction in a Gold Mine

Location: Dubreuilville, ON
Sector: Mines
Category: Cement Grouting

Description

An expanding underground gold mine required the construction of a new ventilation raise through fractured, water-bearing rock conditions.

Working in conjunction with a diamond drilling contractor to drill perimeter holes parallel to the alignment of the planned raise, Multiurethanes supplied cement grouting equipment and experienced personnel for cement grouting work to fill open fractures prior to drilling the pilot hole and reaming of the ventilation raise to the final diameter.

The cement grouting equipment provided consisted of water supply equipment, inflatable borehole packers, electromagnetic flowmeters, progressive cavity pumps and paddle grout mixers.

Cement Grouting for Drill Hole Abandonment Ontario

Cement Grouting for Drill Hole Abandonment

Location: Chapleau, ON
Sector: Mines
Category: Cement Grouting

Description

We assisted a drilling contractor by providing technical expertise, grouting equipment and materials to complete a drill hole abandonment operation at a gold mine in Central Ontario.

The mining company required exploration drill holes to be fully cemented after completion of drilling to the required depth while minimizing loss of cement into the adjacent rock formations. Ground conditions included open faults and fractures that allowed drilling fluids to migrate between adjacent holes.

Our crew worked together with the contractor to efficiently apply the required grouting solution and minimize any negative impact on the environment.
