Olympus completed site characterization, engineering design, repository stability monitoring, and construction management for Phase II of the Comet Mine and Millsite Reclamation Project. The Comet Mine was ranked #10 on the abandoned mine priority list for Montana. The site characterization included drilling and sampling to evaluate waste chemistry and volumes remaining after the completion of Phase I of the project. The engineering design focused primarily on tailings removal, the reconstruction of the High Ore Creek stream channel and floodplain through the Comet Mine site, the removal of the High Ore Creek riprap diversion channel, and the closure of the Phase I repository. Other ancillary tasks included the construction of floodplain diversion/dewatering channels to facilitate construction, removal and disposal of debris, cleaning an existing sediment pond, grading several waste rock piles, backfilling an open shaft, repairing a slump area, revegetating disturbed areas, constructing fences and reclaiming access roads. Olympus provided field engineering and construction management during reclamation construction, which was successfully completed in 2001.

RECEPTIVE, ADAPTABLE, AND PROACTIVE
“We worked with Olympus to demolish, dispose, and backfill two buildings containing hazardous materials. Olympus’ crew was receptive to our requests, adapted to changing site conditions, suggested ways to increase efficiency, and didn’t sway from their proposed cost. Together we changed the site from dilapidated hazardous buildings to a clean construction-ready property.”
