Granites Gold Mine TSF Facility Project
In 2012 The Newmont Mining Corporation engaged Exact Contracting to construct a tailings storage facility (TSF) at their Granites Gold Mine, situated in one of Australia’s most remote locations in the Tanami Desert, Northern Territory. The TSF construction consisted of a new twin cell embankment, two new decant towers and 454,00m² HDEP (High Density Polyethylene) liner and underdrainage network.
GTD08 First Embankment Raise
In 2016 Exact Contracting were engaged to raise the existing perimeter, dividing, causeway embankments and decants by 3.5m.
During the 2016 TSF wall raise campaign Exact Contracting also completed rehabilitation works on a full/unused TSF including a detailed spillway and plunge pool. The two 1m lifts utilised material sourced from a nearby waste dump.
