Turner Mining Group Awarded 5-Year Tailings Facility Expansion Project
Turner Mining Group breaks ground on a new tailings facility expansion project starting March 2021 with scheduled completion in 2025. The project consists of 1.5 mile primary access road relocation and extensive piping system construction along with crushing, mass excavation and earthwork activities for a downstream embankment expansion, and reclamation activities. A seasonal operation, the work will take place April – September over the course of the next five years.
“This is an excellent opportunity for Turner Mining Group to construct an expansion on a tailings facility while tackling technical challenges such as a remote location with environmental restrictions, necessity for precision and seasonal work periods,” said Senior Vice President Lennie Boteilho.
The project expands Turner Mining Group’s portfolio, moving into civil construction activities by providing the mining industry with infrastructure service and support.
“This is yet another example of Turner being able to deliver a full suite of capabilities to the mining sector. With collective team experience, we’re able to deliver a new type of work to a new set of clients under the Turner banner,” notes Chief Operating Officer Thomas Haun.
The selection of Turner Mining Group was attributed to the team’s deep expertise and creative solutions brought to the table during the bidding process. The client felt confident in Turner’s execution plan, expedited project schedule and history of project delivery, seeing the proposal as the best value among bidders.
“This project is yet another exciting chapter in the Turner Mining Group story. We have made investments to put the highest caliber team in place to perform contracts of this magnitude and complexity. We are excited to continue building the runway to deliver the quality work expected from a full-service provider. This win is a great addition to our next phase of growth already underway,” said Founder and President Keaton Turner.
