Our Role

SMEC was engaged to review the stability and sediment run out from the Anjolek Creek waste dump.

  • A review of the dump history and waste quantities
  • An assessment of the geomorphology of the valley, valley erosion and effects on human settlements and cultivated land
  • Recommendations on the likely future impacts of dumping.

Project Overview

The Porgera Gold Mine is located in the Enga province, Papua New Guinea.

The scope of this project involved a review of the stability and sediment run out from the Anjolek Creek waste dump.

The Anjolek Creek dump is a managed erodible dump, where soft waste rock from the mine is dumped. High rainfall washes the sediment into the creek from which it is transported into the Porgera River system.
