The contract works were completed to a very high standard in a timely manner. Works were well planned and the site organisation exceptional.

Tailings Dam Cobar NSW

Bulk earthworks and dam construction

The variable and extreme weather conditions experienced on this site and the logistics of moving heavy equipment into and away from the works were features of this assignment and we were justifiably proud of our ability to overcome all obstacles. 

There were constraints in relation to the construction methodology due to the limited working area, restricted time line and budget.

MC Earthmoving effectively extended the Tailings Storage Facility wall height by three metres, simultaneously placing and conditioning an impervious liner.


I can without hesitation recommend the personnel involved in this project. In almost 40 years of civil engineering this project would have to rank with the very best in terms of planning, organisation and execution.
