Project Description

This project was part of a $50M reclamation project for Rio Tinto’s Barney’s Canyon gold mine. It included soil remediation, extending liners, relaxing the slope of the heap leach pads, stormwater controls, and building demolition. This reclamation work was needed to restore the site to a more natural condition to protect public health, safety, and the environment.

P&J’s Contribution

P&J was responsible for cut/fill reshaping, topsoil load/haul/place, aggregate hauling, and soil remediation. The job encountered soil remediation that significantly changed the schedule and sequence of work. Most original contract activities were put on hold until soil remediation work was complete, and as a result P&J’s contract was modified and scope reduced.
