During the design phase, geotechnical field investigation was performed by drilling test holes along the proposed slurry wall alignment. From the information collected, Deere & Ault determined that the depth to bedrock across the site, ranged between 21 to 35 feet.
Final riprap placement on embankment.
The purpose of the slurry wall is to decrease hydraulic interaction between the surrounding alluvium and the area encompassed by the wall. Reduction of groundwater inflow to the site aids mining efficiency by reducing dewatering requirements during mining activities and decreasing potential drawdown effects on nearby wells.
