Our minesite rehabilitation service can help you fufill your mine rehabilitation commitments upon closure. We have over 60 years of combined experience offering solutions for any size project or budget.
Our team will clean up your waste dump, remove dangerous materials, and use the most efficient earthmoving methods carried out by skilled operators to ensure that your land recovers as quickly as possible.
At the end of a mineâ€™s life cycle, the disturbed waste dump area must be restored to be as close to the natural environment as possible. Â This process involves reshaping the dump, replacing topsoil, seeding and undertaking surface water management strategies.
Goldfields Technical Services can achieve the highest standard available in the industry through their efficient process, and the utmost care is taken to ensure a neat and tidy result that will pass mining rehabilitation compliance.
Our techniques are at the cutting edge of environmental standards. Unlike standard earthmoving contractors, we restore the land by putting back 200 â€“ 300mm of topsoil after reshaping.
The benefits of comprehensive topsoil replacement are:
Our team of skilled operators and extensive experience in minesite rehabilitation allows us to quickly restore disturbed areas without disrupting natural surroundings or harming wildlife habitats.
Surface water management is part of rehabilitation efforts and incorporates segregating the area by building bund walls. This technique prevents scouring, run-off, and erosion of the freshly rehabilitation zone. Segregation is not usually undertaken by earthmoving contractors, but is essential in ensuring that the work stands the test of time and does not need to be re-established.
Sub-standard work can result in additional costs if the final result is non-compliant with environmental regulations or must be re-established after the monitoring period due to water damage.
You can trust Goldfields Technical Services to complete your minesite rehabilitation efficiently and Â to the highest standard, ensuring that you uphold all of your commitments to the Mines Department.
