Mount Milligan Copper-Gold Mine, Thompson Creek Metals Company

Allnorth provides multiple services for the Mount Milligan project. Initially, Allnorth supported feasibility studies and managed regulatory permit applications, from simple applications to multi-level permits involving extensive collaboration prior to submission. As the project progressed, Allnorth’s scope of work evolved to include a wide range of additional services, such as survey, layout, and design of roads and a powerline; civil and structural engineering; materials testing; and environmental services.

Allnorth’s responsibilities for this project included:

  • Mine and construction permitting, including BC Mines Act permits
  • Preparation of a logging plan and an access management plan
  • Survey and layout of a 92 km-long powerline
  • Survey, layout, and design of a 27 km-long road that included 3 bridges, 3 major culverts
  • Design of 8 additional bridges to meet the requirements of a fish stream compensation program
  • Topographic survey and layout for earthworks at the project site
  • Stream crossing assessments
