Karouni Mine

Project Highlights:

  • Geotechnical Investigation
  • Hydraulics
  • Hyrdology
  • Slope Stability Analysis
  • Geologic Mapping

Pit Design Review

Tierra Group reviewed and provided pit slope recommendations and conducted hydrological assessments for the Resource 1 and 2 deposits water management system at Troy Resources’ Karouni Mine (Karouni). Advanced pre-feasibility level recommendations for pit development were provided based on benchmarking slope performance from nearby pits and complementary geotechnical drilling to identify extents and failure mechanisms in saprolitic, transitional and fresh rock units.
