Mine Haul Roads on Composite Geogrids in Northern Ontario

Mine Haul Roads on Composite Geogrids in Northern Ontario

Mines depend on consistent access for site safety, operational efficiency, and profitability. Delays in access can quickly cost active mines millions of dollars in lost production, and that can determine the fate of a site’s continued operation. In Northern Ontario, mine haul roads on composite geogrids have proven to be a highly effective strategy to keep mines running. MINE HAUL ROADS – GEOTECHN... »
