Project Description

Project: Marten Wheeler Exploration Site Pre-feasibility Study – Snow Avalanche Risk Assessment

Client: Teck Coal

Dynamic was engaged to complete an assessment of snow avalanche risk and provide mitigation recommendations for two proposed coal transportation corridors linking the Marten-Wheeler exploration site to the Coal Mountain mine operation near Sparwood, BC. We mapped avalanche hazards, provided an avalanche risk assessment including a quantitative analysis of the vulnerability of work crews along the proposed transportation options, analyzed mitigation options and provided design specifications for facilities at risk.
