ATLAS IRON MT WEBBER MINE PRECAST FOOTINGS
Mt Webber is Atlas’ fifth mine to be developed, with development commencing only five years after Atlas’ first mine commenced production.
The mining contract was awarded to BGC Contracting who had the responsibility of developing the project as well as the mining, crushing and screening, when it got underway in April 2014.
Dallcon was engaged by BGC to supply all precast footings for the construction of the mine. Works included the manufacturing of around 130 precast structural foundations, totalling around 450 cubic metres of concrete.
Project requirements included batching 40MPa concrete and mobilising cranes to lift some of the products weighing around 30 tonne.
