  1. Canadian Diamond Drilling Association Vancouver, BC May 29, 2008 Technically Demanding Cement Grout Applications Involving Diamond Core Drilling Peter White, P.Eng

  2. Diamond Core Drilling • for Grouting Projects: • In The Hole

  3. Diamond Core Drilling • for Grouting Projects: • In The Hole • Around The Hole

  4. Diamond Core Drilling • for Grouting Projects: • In The Hole • Around The Hole • Beyond The Hole

  5. Diamond Core Drilling • for Grouting Projects: • In The Hole • Around The Hole • Beyond The Hole • Typically Bad Ground Conditions

  6. Recent Diamond Drilling Contractors • with Technical Grouting Projects: • Boart Longyear (FNX Podolsky) • Forage Orbit Garant (FNX Podolsky) • Major Drilling (Goldcorp & Diavik) • Progressive Drilling (PCS Picadilly) • Hy-Tech Drilling (McArthur River)

  7. Grouting Project Profiles • Agnico-Eagle, Finland • Goldcorp, Red Lake, Ont. • Hsuehshan Tunnel, Taiwan • Pan American Silver, Peru

  8. Agnico-Eagle, Finland Kittilä Mine Ventilation Raise Through Water-Bearing Formations

  9. Agnico-Eagle, Finland Problem: To Seal Water-Bearing Formations Prior to Vent Raise Excavation

  10. Agnico-Eagle, Finland • Solution: • Systematic Perimeter Drill Hole Pattern • Down Stage Cement Grouting • Grouting Strategy • Specified Grout Mixtures • Target Grouting Parameters

  13. Typical Raise Bore Enclosure

  14. Drill Casings for Electrical Cables

  15. Drill Casings for Mine Backfill Pipes

  16. Diamec U6 Drill Rig

  17. Cemix 203 H Colloidal Mixer

  18. Cemag 403 H Agitator Tank

  19. Agnico-Eagle, Finland • Key Elements for Success: • Experienced Contractor • Appropriate Drilling and Grouting Equipment • Selection of Suitable Cements for Site Conditions • Appropriate Use of Grouting Additives • Consistent Range of Grout Formulations • Target Grout Volumes and Decision Criteria • Limited Duration Grouting Operations

  20. Goldcorp Red Lake Mine Ventilation Raise With Major Water-Bearing Fracture

  21. Goldcorp, Red Lake Ont. Problem: To Seal Water-Bearing Fault In Pilot Hole at 400 ft Depth And Reduce 20 GPM Water Inflow Before Reaming Raise to 18 ft Dia

  22. Goldcorp, Red Lake Ont. Solution: Plug Pilot Hole to Stop Water Inflow Systematic Perimeter Drill Hole Pattern Microfine Cement Grouting
