Hawthorne Gold Corp
Landmark was retained by Hawthorne Gold Corp. to design and build a new ramp to their existing Ore Bin at their mine site in Jade City, B.C. This project involved the survey, design, supply, and installation of the new ramp. A Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil (GRS) structure was designed to replace the existing wooden timbered ramp, at a considerable savings over conventional MSE construction. This concept allowed the ramp to fit into the existing bedrock slope, eliminating the requirement for costly drilling and blasting.
- Construction Duration: 7 Days
- Structure Length (m): 35
- Structure Height (m): 15
- Foundation Material: Bedrock
- Fill Material: Sands and gravels
- Finished Road Width (m): Variable (5-15)
