GDS Case Study: Cadia Valley Operations Northern Tailings Storage Facility Embankment Slump

During the afternoon of the 9th of March 2018, a mobile slump occurred in an approximately 300 m section of the southern embankment of the Cadia Valley Operations (Cadia) Northern Tailings Storage Facility (NTSF), located in central-west New South Wales, Australia. The embankment slump resulted in a release of tailings from the NTSF, with the released tailings captured within the adjacent South Tailings Storage Facility (STSF).

Installation of Apparatus to Study Weak Rocks of the Maltese Islands

Diogo Teles a QA, Support and Installation Engineer from GDS Instruments, has recently returned from the University of Malta, where he installed an Enterprise Level Dynamic Triaxial Testing System (ELDYN), a 4MPa Triaxial Automated System (GDSTAS) and a High Pressure Triaxial Automated System (100kN / 64MPa / 100mm, HPTAS). High pressure LVDT’s and Acoustic Velocity Transducers have been purchased for the high pressure system. Whilst, Hall Effects, Bender Elements and LVDT’s have been procured to use on either the ELDYN or GDSTAS.
