MINING UPDATE

Mining operations are underway at both the Secondary Entrance and the Main Entrance sites. Mining occurs on a 24 hour schedule. Starting in early September, mining will occur on a 24 hour schedule, 7 days a week. Read the construction notice for more detail.

 Secondary Entrance

At the Secondary Entrance, excavation activities will continue and are focused in the underground area between the secondary entrance and the main entrance. Work will occur on Saturday, Sunday and Monday over the long weekend. .

Main Entrance

The underground mining sequence continues at the main entrance in the same area as this past week. The activities include excavation under the completed arches, and spraying of concrete to finalize and support the earth around each excavated section. We repeat the same sequence as we advance southward. Work will occur on Saturday, Sunday and Monday over the long weekend. 

Noise and Vibration Mitigation

Noise and vibration impacts to your building depend on your proximity to the source and how the vibrations travel through the soil and interact with the foundation and structure of your building. Crosslinx Transit Solutions has implemented several noise reduction measures on site to mitigate the impact felt by the community during mining activities. Enclosures are used to cover equipment like generators and pumps, silencers are used to reduce noise from fans, and delivery routes and times are selected to minimize disruption – just to name a few.

If you experience disruption from mining activities, please call our 24/7 phone line at 416-782-8118.
