Aggregate Miner and Supplier Slurry Wall Program

Industry: Mining and Metals
Location: Mountain States

ENTACT originally served this major aggregate miner and supplier by replacing a cutoff wall more than 9,000 feet high. This successful job, and the relationship formed during the project, established ENTACT as the client’s dedicated slurry wall contractor. Our client’s subsequent needs included the construction of a 7,438-foot-long, 30-inch-wide soil-bentonite slurry wall to minimize dewatering efforts and facilitate dry mining operations.

In addition to constructing a new slurry wall, our responsibilities included the identification and protection of many subsurface utility lines that penetrated the proposed slurry wall alignments, as well as coordinating daily construction operations with active mining operations.
