In the interest of cutting their expenses on the maintenance and watering of the roads at Kipoi Mine in the DRC, Tiger Resources contacted Soil Solutions to upgrade and surface seal one of the access roads. The existing road surface was scarified and mine waste from the open pit was added and mixed into the wearing course and then compacted in preparation of the EBS surface seal. The surface was then swept free of excess dust and debris and then watered prior to the application of the EBS surface seal. The EBS was then loaded into the water tanker and applied over the surface in several coats. Satisfied with the result Management has requested to have an additional 5 km of road treated as well as the workshop area and office parking area which they estimate will result in a savings of the use of over a million liters of water per day that they were previously using for dust suppression.
