UNDERGROUND CONTRACTOR OF CHOICE IN THE USA
In the United States, Cementation USA has quickly established itself as the underground mine contractor of choice.
In the United States, Cementation USA has quickly established itself as the underground mine contractor of choice. In addition to major projects at Resolution in Arizona, and Lucky Friday in Idaho, the group secured an extension of work at Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon project in Utah. Bingham Canyon was the site of a massive landslide in the spring of 2013 that resulted in loss of access to the underground workings and a suspension of the contracts that Cementation USA had in place. They were awarded the next phase of the work, and working closely with Kennecott personnel, established high advance rates in difficult conditions. This superior performance was a key factor in Cementation USA winning the next major underground contract at Kennecott Bingham Canyon.
Another key part of the future of Cementation USA is the Eagle project for Lundin Mining in Michigan. This development project was awarded to the company in November 2013 and mobilisation commenced at the end of the calendar year. The work scope is substantial and has helped Cementation USA maintain a strong order book for the next few years. Top all that off with over 700 days with no lost time injuries, and this has been a banner year for Cementation USA.
