The Kogan Creek IPAC 1 supply and installation project was completed in May 2019 by Jaylon in conjunction with their client BMD Constructions, the successful project consisted of 110,000 m2 of Solmax 1.5mm white LLDPE Geomembrane and 12,000m2 of Coletanche ES4 material from Axter International.
Project Name: Kogan Creek IPAC 1
Principal: CS Energy Limited 
Main Contractor: BMD Constructions
Geomembrane Installer: Jaylon 
https://cloud.excelplas.com/index.php/s/WbEpVyGQIggGQFz

The Citic Pacific Mining Tailings Dam Embankment Raise was completed in January 2019 by Jaylon in conjunction with their client BGC Contracting. This challenging project utilised specialist Coletanche deployment equipment for safe deployment on steep slopes (1V : 1.3H). The works consisted of 58,000 m2 of Coletanche ES4 HFA (High friction Angle) from Axter International and 2.3km of tie in to the existing LLDPE liner using Hyrene Spot ADH membrane and adhesive bond. Ancillary works consisted of installation of protective non woven cushion geotextiles in various critical areas.

Weak Subgrade Treatment Using Geogrid Reinforcement
In order to demonstrate and quantify the benefit of geogrid reinforcement in improving the bearing capacity of weak subgrades, a full-scale laboratory, as well as two recent full-scale instrumented field trial beds, were constructed and evaluated by the authors; one in Germany and another one in Australia. In each project the variation in observed in-situ bearing capacity and the modulus parameter was evaluated over a series of variants, including geogrid strength/stiffness, geogrid combination, thickness and quality of cover materials. The results demonstrate a clear improvement in the bearing capacity of the geogrid reinforced section when compared to the unreinforced sections. Similarly, the reinforced trial beds exhibited a considerable reduction in the vertical deformation and lower magnitudes of normal stress being transferred to the underlying weak subgrade were observed. The results also demonstrated a clear influence of the strength parameter of the geogrids on the performance of the geogrid reinforcement.
