Recent Project Experience
Over the past 20 years, we have been involved in a wide range of underground projects in a variety of industries and settings. From all types of underground mines, to nuclear waste-storage facilities, subways, highway tunnels and hotels, we have excelled in meeting the needs of our clients by providing innovative and cost-effective solutions. It is impossible to list all of our project experience and applications here, so if the following list of recent project experience does not apply to your unique situation please contact us to find out how we have assisted clients with ventilation-related needs similar to yours.
Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment, Sanford Underground Laboratories, South Dakota, USA
Ventilation system design studies spanning project phases from feasibility to final design. Measurement, analysis, design and modeling of the underground environment that includes climate and fire modeling.
Pre-feasibility and Bankable Feasibility (43-101) studies for this planned underground block-cave mine located in a remote part of British Colombia.
Ventilation survey and extensive design studies for this large underground metal mining complex located in central Mexico. Project needs included extensive training and support of the ventilation department. Designed and managed the implementation of five new primary fans and increased underground airflow by more than one million cfm.
PhD Thesis work consists of conceptual Design, research, construction and implementation of a series of ventilation training modules that will be available to ventilation practitioners throughout the world. The training modules are topic-specific, asynchronous and searchable.
Ongoing support for the ventilation department of Andina Division includes managing large-scale ventilation surveys of the underground block-cave mine and underground processing plants at a remote site in the Andes mountains. Ventilation modeling studies in support of optimization and enhancement of the ventilation system in support of planned production increases. Fire-risk analyses and modeling.
Ventilation survey and modeling for these underground conveyor tunnels that transport the open-pit production to the processing plant. Fire-risk analyses and modeling.
Ongoing support for the ventilation department of this large, block-cave molybdenum mine. Managing ventilation surveys and future modeling in support of mine expansion.
Master’s Thesis completed at Queen’s University in 2013. A comprehensive analysis of the foundational principals in designing underground ventilation systems to meet the needs of the planned or operating diesel equipment.
Ventilation survey and model development in support of mine expansion and major ventilation system upgrades for this unique underground diamond mine.
Ventilation system design at feasibility level for this mineral transport tunnel located in British Columbia.
Ventilation survey, modeling and recommendations for methane mitigation in the bleeder system of this longwall coal mining operation.
