Voisey's Bay civil works required mobilization of all civil construction equipment necessary to complete the infrastructure work. Civil works included over 7,860,000 cubic yards of material excavation, 2,620,000 cubic yards of rock excavation, and the construction of 12 miles of main mine haul road and access roads. Five miles of pipes/culverts were installed as well as in excess of 300,000 square yards of HDPE (high density polyethylene) liner was applied to the mine settling ponds.
Despite northern climates, strict environmental parameters and schedule constraints, the entire project was fast-tracked. Throughout construction, considerable resources were dedicated to successfully train aboriginal workers in cooperation with our partners, the Labrador Inuit Association and the Innu Nation.
