Creek Constrained

BHP Billiton Iron Ore's Yandi Project in the Pilbara is located approximately 100km northwest of Newman in Western Australia. 

The Yandi orebody is a near-surface Channel Iron Deposit (CID) sub-divided into a series of mine pit areas. The project requires the construction of flood protection bunds as a stable, functioning landform to provide appropriate levels of flood protection for safe mining operations.

BGC Contracting is to design and construct Flood Protection Bunds to provide operational flood protection to the mining operations in the Yandi pit. The design of the bunds must take into account their use during both ongoing operation of the Yandi mine and following mine closure. The scope also includes relocation of mining operational infrastructures namely the Yandi Dewatering Pipeline and 33 kV Overhead Power Line, including OPGW communications.
