I spent some time last week, this past weekend, and today polishing the webcast coming up next week on Geosynthetics in Mining. We started out as a small group, Tarik, Terry, and me. But as we talked and planned, we realized we needed other to augment us. So I am proud to tell that we now have Abigail, Bertrand, Marat, and Ryan join us. Here is more detail:
Jack Caldwell is a consulting engineer for RGC with over 35 years of experience in mining, geotechnical and site remediation projects.
Tarik Hadj-Hamou, waste management and geotechnics expert with SLR, has over forty years’ experience in civil and geotechnical engineering and risk analysis.
Terry Mandziak, Principal Geotechnical Engineer at SRK, has more than 21 years of diversified professional experience in project coordination and project design, and is a leading expert on heap leach pads and their design, construction, operation, and closure.
Abigail Beck is Director of Liner Integrity Services for TRI Environmental, Inc. She will talk on that incredibly important part of geosynthetics installation, namely quality assurance and construction quality control. I have listened to her on this subject before—she is the expert and we will all learn from her.
Bertrand Breul is a civil engineer and Managing Director at Axter Coletanche. He is a young fellow promoting his product. But he is knowledgeable and passionate. I reckon it is worth hearing from him on the bituminous geomembranes he sells—and designs with as part of his sales responsibilities.
Marat Goldenberg is a civil/environmental engineer at CETCO. He too is young, eager, and informed. Again I invited him to join us on the basis that he knows CETCOs products better than anybody and is the best person to learn from I can imagine.
Ryan McKeever is Technical Sales Consultant – Mining for Nuna Innovations Inc. A young Irishman with sparkling eyes, and in my opinion, an incredible geosynthetic that is currently very expensive. So I have invited him to tell us more about a product that I am sure will in time become a staple in the mining industry.
There is still plenty of time to register an join us for three hours for three days next week. Click this link.
The course is intended for all who manage, operate, design, or approve (as regulators) geowaste facilities. It is also for those who are interested in advances in the use of Geosynthetics in such structures as part of the process of enhancing mine water management and the functionality and economy of such facilities.
