The Canadian Malartic mine is one of Canada's (CMM) largest gold mines. CMM is committed to constantly conducting its operations in a way that ensures a healthy and safe work environment. Potential rockfall hazards led CMM to contact Geobrugg for advice on mitigation solutions. Geobrugg worked with CMM on selecting the attenuator system solution as the most efficient and cost-effective solution for the open pit.
Geobrugg worked closely with the mine and with Construction & Expertise PG as the installation contractor to manage the rockfall hazards. To date, approximately 33,000m² of TECCO® for about 450 meters of attenuator have been installed. During the installation of the attenuator, all the mining activities were conducted normally without interruption.
