Verifying soil mixing in Finland

We have just finished carrying out more than 150 CPTs and insitu shear vane tests to provide an accurate measurement of soil mixing column shear strength in Kittila, Finland. The 18m long columns were being used to raise a mine tailings dam.

Michel Julien, Vice-President, Environment, Agnico Eagle Mines, said: “I would like to take the opportunity to thank Lankelma’s team for its hard work, which has set a new standard in our company. We have collected a lot of very good data and our preliminary interpretation indicates the deep soil mixing has significantly improved the behaviour of the tailings.”
