Dalgaranga Mine Site
Expansion Joint Sealing
The Dalgaranga Mine is located approximately 70 kms, by road, north west of Mount Magnet in the Murchison gold mining region of Western Australia; it covers the majority of the Dalgaranga greenstone belt.
In 2017, the mine site underwent construction of new mining facilities to increase plant capacity. Nino Constructions engaged the services of BUSS to complete the floor joint sealing works to the expansion joints for the tank/workshop concrete slab. The surface area was grinded down, wire brush cleaned, surface preparation completed, backing rod installed and primer and sealant applied. Completion of the works ensured the integrity of the concrete floor and will protect the joint from impact damage caused by heavy equipment being driver and/or rolled over it.
Being a regional outback site, there was an abundance of red dirt which had the potential to negatively impact product adhesion and the application process itself. Great care was taken in cleaning the substrate on a continual basis, which ensured the integrity of the works.
In strict accordance with relevant mining requirements on remote work sites and to ensure personnel safety, BUSS developed and implemented a Journey Management Plan.
Due to their exposure to periods of prolonged driving activities in a remote location, Buss’ site personnel travelled to and from the work site in accordance with this plan.
- Project flow was well maintained by working cohesively with construction team;
- Works were completed with adherence to strict mining health and safety regulations; and
- Works successfully completed before scheduled finish.
