Engineered Landforms & Storage Facilities

EGL has been involved in the design and review of engineered landforms for the disposal of rock, and tailing storage facilities, in New Zealand, Australia, New Caledonia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Philippines, Africa and Eastern Europe.

EGL employs highly skilled and experienced staff for the design and review of facilities used for the storage of overburden rock, tailings and refuse materials. EGL has more than 30 years’ experience providing services to the mining and landfill industry.

EGL provides services for scoping and feasibility studies, geotechnical investigations, tailings characterisation and deposition modelling, as well as dam breach studies and the assessment of consequence categories. We also provide site-specific seismic hazard studies, liquefaction assessments and numerical modelling (including response to earthquake shaking assessment).

EGL works tirelessly on all projects to produce detailed designs; prepare plans, specs and contract documents; monitor construction advice given and certification; and to ensure dam safety management to include the development of operation, maintenance and surveillance plans.

We've proven ourselves an expert in the evaluation and interpretation of monitoring and surveillance data, preparation of emergency action plans, and the performance of dams and dam safety review. EGL has also provided forensic examination and been contracted to provide expert opinion and independent third party reviews.
