Bonacci Group provided design and site based services for this haematite (iron ore) mine project 70 km South of Coober Pedy South Australia.  The scope of design included the complete civil documentation for the rail load-out loop, crushing hardstand, and other associated drainage, pavement and earthworks.

All documentation was carried out using 3D topographic modelling [12D] for co-ordination and assessment of earthworks volumes.  In collaboration with the mining and process engineer, Como Engineers Pty Ltd, Bonacci maintained a team of civil engineers on site to provide resident engineer services to the haul road under construction, including the numerous attendant civil structures along the 96km traverse of the road.

The project also involved design of an ore transhipment facility at Port Pirie.  Civil design works for this component included remediation earthworks, pavement and drainage design, 250m road overpass, dual rail spur and dock strengthening works.  Again, partnering with the project superintendant [Como] we maintained a site presence to co-ordinate the civil works on location.
