Aquarius Platinum South Africa (AQPSA) is planning the expansion of their Everest Platinum Mine located approximately 30 km west of Lydenburg in Mpumalanga. The proposed expansion will include the addition of two new decline box-cuts, a tailings storage facility and a new road connecting this infrastructure. This extension of the infrastructure will provide access to additional ore-body that will increase the life of the mine.
ARQ Consulting was responsible for conducting and supervising the geotechnical fieldwork, the interpretation of results and several analyses, including finite element analyses, in order to produce detailed designs for certain components of the proposed surface infrastructure.
