Location: Balmertown, Ontario, Canada
Goldcorp retained HGC Engineering to undertake an Acoustic Assessment of the Red Lake Gold Mines facility in Balmertown, Ontario. The complex is the flagship operation of the company and is located in one of the most prolific gold camps in Canada. The facility is comprised of three adjacent mine sites: the Campbell Complex, the Red Lake Complex and the Balmer Complex. The study was required in support of an application to the Ministry of Environment (“MOE”) for a Combined-Site Comprehensive Environmental Compliance Approval (“ECA”) for the three mining complexes.
Following comprehensive acoustical measurements and analysis a Noise Abatement Action Plan was presented including detailed acoustical performance specifications and a timeline for the implementation of the required noise control measures.
Acoustical Engineering Services Included:
- Conducted detailed Acoustic Assessment Report and audits in accordance with The Ontario Ministry of the Environment Guidelines
- Specified detailed noise controls
- Developed noise abatement action plan
- Follow-up acoustic measurements to confirm performance of noise control measures
