CIM Oil Sands Branch gets practical solutions

By C. West

Members of the CIM Oil Sands Branch went back to school last fall as the 2009-2010 technical talk series kicked off with guest speakers Johan Liebenberg and David Heckendorn of Atlantic Industries Limited. Their presentation, “Efficient Minesite Solutions,” focused on customized infrastructure solutions in geotechnical retaining walls, culverts/tunnels and bridges, paying special attention to the required life span of a structure, whether it should be portable or reusable, and maximizing soil properties available at the mine site.

Christian West is the CIM Oil Sands Branch chair.
