High Mountain Excavation with Northern Platinum

Tana Contracting, with Charles Egli as owner/operater, was hired by Northern Platinum to access a remote mining area, high in the St. Elias Mountains with the companies' 320L CAT excavator. In the industry, this is considered a high risk excavation project that requires experience and thoughtful operation.

The first task was to access a collapsed ventilation shaft to an abandoned mine, exposing the area for evaluation and environmental maintenance.

Tana Contracting was also required to maneuver along the steep slopes of the St. Elias Mountains over the extremely steep terrain, slippery scree slope and rock in order to access areas to obtain mineral samples. The task was completed without incident.
