The Need

Golder Paste Technology had the mandate for the procurement of a paste backfill plant at the Diavik Diamond Mines in Canada's Northwest Territories. The equipment had to operate continuously, 24 hours/day. All equipment had to be manufactured on a fast track schedule and delivered on winter roads only.

BMH Solution 

BMH assisted Golder Paste Technology in performing the detailed engineering for the conveyors and galleries that were needed to operate in extreme cold weather.
