BC-09 Soil Salvage

Odin performed soil salvage activities for an active waste rock dump area at a large copper mine. The project included pioneering access roads to a previously inaccessible mountainside, deforesting sections of the slopes with heavy vegetation, stripping topsoil overlying bedrock down the mountainside, and hauling the soil to a common stockpile. Approximately 720,000 CY of soil was salvaged throughout the duration of the project for future reuse during the final reclamation of the mine site.
