Mine Reopens Just Nine Days after Major Fire

Industry: Mining

Project Scope

When fire damaged a Michigan iron ore mine last December and threatened to collapse a 400-foot long suspended limestone conveyor system, CR Meyer was called into engineer a solution to stabilize, decommission and dismantle the conveyor. The wide range of round-the-clock engineering and demolition expertise and manpower saved the mine from a long-term shutdown that would have resulted from the conveyor system falling onto the mine’s centralized electrical equipment.

The mine was back in operation just nine days after the fire.

CR Meyer played a key role as a partner in the overall success of our project. The entire construction team was fully engaged and committed to delivering the successful results of being under budget, starting up early and attaining end-of-curve production in unprecedented time.
