CQA International Ltd. has recently completed the starter dam for a tailings storage facility at a gold mine in Azerbaijan. The dam is 40m high and will eventually reach 70m. CQA was responsible for the design and construction supervision, for a fixed fee, within strict time and budget constraints. The contract also included a 6km pipeline route and access road with major cuttings and embankments through mountainous terrain. This work is a continuation of CQA’s previous services in Azerbaijan, which include leach pads, ponds and other infrastructure.
