Systematic risk based deactivation and stabilization : the Kemess Mine powerline deactivation program Davidson, Scott Charles


Kemess Mine is an open-pit gold-copper mine located in northern British Columbia. A 380 km long, 230 kV powerline built for the project provides electricity to the minesite. Deactivation of the access roads and the tote roads along the powerline corridor were initiated in 1998 and were completed in 2001. This paper outlines the systematic risk-based approach to the deactivation program and some of the considerations that were incorporated into the deactivation program.
