Our pit, dump, ramp, haul route and rehabilitation designs are practical and with the exception of some greenfield projects, have in most cases been implemented by our customers. Given the turnkey nature, Tacmin contracts offer rapid turn-around since engineering design and implementation go hand-in-hand. As such and due to our multiple years of open-pit mine design experience, our expertise are capable, subject to as-built conditions, of re-designing open-pits to reduce the remedial work to the minimum and or else as a second phase determine the extent, resources and estimated costs associated with remedial work.
Preceded by the work outlined under the aforesaid section and upon finalization of a contract agreement, Tacmin commences with the implementation and rolling out with predetermined slope design reinstatement and remedial work, which is meticulously and continuously coordinated with technical and production personnel in anticipation to prioritize safe ongoing waste and ore production operations.
