Mine Site Northern Saskatchewan  – Tailings Remediation Plan Quality Control / Quality Assurance Program

Okane developed a remediation plan for the tailings areas at an abandoned uranium mine site in northern Saskatchewan, Canada.

Okane is acting as on-site Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC) inspector on behalf of the project manager, for construction of the tailings remediation plan. Okanes primary task onsite is to record and document how FDLNJV constructed the tailings cover system, ensuring that it was built to the technical specifications developed by Okane to achieve the design criteria.

This included but was not limited to:

  • Sampling and testing construction materials to ensure the gradation or design criteria of materials used meets design specifications;
  • Visually inspecting material as it is placed within the tailings landforms;
  • Reviewing and approving final surveyed surfaces.
