Morro Do Ouro (Paracatu) Gold Mine
Our team will reach out to you in some time
The project included monitoring of 10 m high trial embankment built on silt gold mine tailings of Morro do Ouro Dam/mine (also known as Paracatu Mine), Brazil. The dam is the country’s largest tailings dam having 120 m in height and 4 km in length. Mine tailings were disposed at the Morro do Ouro Dam. The trial aimed at investigating tailings strength behaviour, which field experience has already indicated to be better than predicted by in situ and laboratory tests.
The embankment foundation was instrumented with piezometers, settlement plates, profiler and inclinometers, supplied through our Marketing Associate, Terratek Ltd. in Brazil
