This project involved the construction of a Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) and its associated works, which forms part of the Marampa Iron Ore Project in Sierra Leone.
Under the Marampa Iron Ore Project, mining infrastructure was developed in order to expand and increase production of iron ore to 6.15Mwmt/a by 2014. The TSF is one of a number of infrastructure improvements required to achieve this target.
The TSF provided an additional storage capacity of 28.5million cubic metres for tailings arising from the mining and processing operations. The works involved:
On all our projects in West Africa we have employed local people and provided training and development in a range of construction disciplines, to European standards. To support this training and development, Dawnus constructed a Training Academy at Marampa Mine, which supported a team of five trainers, and includes two classrooms and office space, along with a secure external training ground. Plant and equipment was allocated to the Academy for training.
Trainees at the Academy were given employment at the mine, along with the resources and materials they will require to complete their training.
