Simbeck & Associates of Mancos, Colorado, recently completed an installation project at the old Bullion King Mine outside of Silverton, Colorado. This project was high priority for the State of Colorado due to leachate running off from the spent ore pile. Kirsten Brown of the Division of Mine Safety and Reclamation does a remarkable job prioritizing and overseeing reclamation efforts across Colorado. McCulloms Excavating hired Simbeck & Associates to cap the pile with 70,000 sf of reinforced 45 mil polypropylene (sandwiched by two layers of 8 oz. textile). Simbeck partnered with Colorado Lining, International to expedite the fabricated liner panels and begin installation. Shuttling materials to the job-site was a major issue on old mining roads up to 12,500 foot elevation.
