Tailored to tailings.

Can you get more out of your backfill?

Our in-house lab conducts testing to determine which binders work best in the unique aggregate of each mine’s fill material. We try different proportions of cement, water and cementitious materials to tailor the mix to perform with the minerals and chemistry in your backfill material.

We operate more than 175 ready-mix concrete plants across Canada, which require similar equipment, skills, and competencies to those essential to effective and efficient paste plant operation. This includes setup, operation, and ongoing maintenance expertise. We’ve been involved in paste fill operations since 2004 and can provide you paste fill plant construction knowledge alongside operation solutions.

Lafarge has been involved in paste fill operations since 2004 and is an integral part of building a paste fill plant. We can provide you paste fill plant construction knowledge just as much as operation knowledge.

We can also help optimize backfill plant operations. Our vendor managed inventory (VMI) program allows us to remotely monitor the contents of your storage silos and automatically ship materials when they’re needed. And because we have coverage across Canada, we can service even the most remote location.

Because better service means smoother mining operations.

Let me help you overshoot your goals in the right ways.
