Barrick Gold- Hemlo, Concrete Dams
Construction of 2 large concrete dams. Scope included excavation of hitches, rebar re-enforcement, rock dowels, formwork, concrete hauling and placement along with the installation of piping. The continuous pour for the largest dam, at 80 cu-m of concrete, required close co-operation with our suppliers, other contractors and our client. A fleet of 5 transmixers was used to place the concrete to ensure minimal impact on Barrick’s operation. Formwork was specifically engineered to allow the placement of concrete in under 12 hours.
