Acceleration of strength gain to facilitate embankment raises

Mine owners face a myriad of subsurface challenges. The challenges occur in developing mines, production in existing mines as well as the disposal and containment of mine tailings and waste. Keller provides comprehensive solutions to the full range of subsurface challenges faced by mine operators.

Keller provides the widest range of geotechnical construction solutions for problems faced by the mining industry. From remediation work to ground improvement for new facilities, we deliver. Our cost-effective design-build solutions range from environmental groundwater cutoff and dewatering, to ground freezing for mine shaft access, to earth retention for slope stability. We can mobilize quickly to your site to stabilize distressed infrastructure, bringing your operations back on line. Our patented vertical drainage system for heap leach piles prevents slope failure and allows subsequent percolation to reach deeper into the pile for an increased yield.

We strive to combine our experience to safely provide innovative geotechnical solutions. Keller’s “Think Safe” program implemented over 10 years ago to develop and reinforce our safety culture to match or exceed the safety program of our clients. We have an outstanding record of performance and customer satisfaction on technically challenging mine projects. Our experienced Mine Safety and Health administration (MSHA)-certified mine crews and specialized equipment have completed numerous complex underground and surface mining and reclamation projects for both large and small mining companies, federal government agencies, and state mine reclamation programs.

Keller crews have been working in a variety of mines throughout the world for well over 50 years. This unparalleled experience allows us to provide our mine clients with a tailored solution based on previous successful projects. To date Keller has completed mining projects throughout North South and Central America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa. We combine detailed local knowledge with real world experience to ensure that no question goes unanswered, no problem goes unsolved, and no job goes unfinished.
