Featured Projects


Teck Coal Ltd—Line Creek Operations 2018-19 Fording 2018    Contouring

This project scope was specific to the reclamation activities at Line Creek Operations which covered contouring and site prep at the West Line Creek Spoil. The objective was to reduce the inclination of the dump face from 36 degrees to an angle less than or equal to 26 degrees. This project received one of the highest regards from Teck Coal with 5 D11s.

Teck Coal Ltd—Line Creek Operations 2018, Fording River Operations 2019, Greenhills Operations 2019

All three mines had individual ‘Soil Salvage’ projects which consisted of topsoil striping, hauling and placement to contour design. Removed water bars on existing exploration access roads and rebuilt berms. The areas were undeveloped and remote by mine site standards and characterized as mountainous terrain with slopes of 20-40 degrees.

Teck Coal Ltd– Greenhills Operations 2016—CPX

The area was stripped of vegetation with an excavator and dozer, top soil stripped, loaded and hauled to a designated soil stockpile location. The settling ponds were constructed to specifications. Installation of temporary diversions of existing water flow were completed along with installing permanent piping. Water was redirected into a permanent constructed channel leading into new ponds.

Teck Coal Ltd– Greenhills Operations 2014/15/16/17/18/19/20 Fording River Operations 2018/19 Annual Pond cleanout and Maintenance.

Material is removed from the pond, loaded onto a truck and hauled to designated location. Excavators, dozers, ADT Trucks, pumps and graders are used for these projects.

Corbin Creek Project 2015 & Elk Valley Airport 2015

The project scope for Corbin Creek was to re-direct the river to original channel and key in rip rap rock on toe of slope. Re-establish slope to design.  Elk Valley Ariport project consisted of making a channel for the river flow, consisting of filter cloth and rip rap to design, capping with top soil.

Teck Coal Ltd– Fording River Operations / AWTF Water Treatment Facility

Transcendent Mining completed the early civil works for this project which consisted of top soil stripping, mass excavation, road construction, pipe line excavation and back fill, and rough site grading. We continued with the project with the OSBL and Wood scope where we were placing and compacting material in adverse winter conditions to reinstate water structure. Backfill was also place around concreate volt structures and over HDPE Pipe lines. We then moved into sub base and final grade placement around the plant area.

Teck Coal Ltd– Fording River Operations / Castle Mountain Project

This project consisted of exploration road and drill pad construction to facilitate drilling and test pitting. Specialty equipment was used to stay in compliance with the Ministry of Mines on narrow roads and steep terrain.

Teck Coal Ltd—Greenhills Operations 2015/16/17 Dam Lift

This project involved hauling and placing til and clay liner, with excavators, dozers and trucks lifting and compacting the pond to specifications.

Teck Coal Ltd—Fording River Operations 2020 Eagle 4 Drill Pads and Other

This project consists of Dozers, excavators, graders, rock trucks and Packers. Equipment was utilized to prepare the Eagle 4 SFR Well Field Drill Pads. Multiple D11s moved over 100,000 cubes of material. We also provided large dozers in a short period of time to meet the schedule and time restraints.

Teck Coal Ltd—Fording River Operations 2020 Pipe Fusing

We have fused 4 to 22 inch plus lines at Fording River over 10,000 meters of pipe to date. With our access to heavy equipment and fabrication services, we are able to perform complex fuses in steep terrain. We have the ability to install pipe lines down spoils that are not accessible by foot or equipment.

Fish Habitat

Transcendent Mining constructed and restored 2.4km of river bank to create valuable habitat for westslope cut throat trout. This project involved several creek diversions, rip rap installations, bolder runs, ripple construction and woody debris installation.

Drill Pads

Transcendent Mining has constructed  hundreds of drill pads for exploration ground water wells, geotechnical inspections, drill blast programs, and pumping wells. Along with the drill pad construction, we have constructed many access roads through adverse terrain to reach the remote locations that many of these drill pads were required.

City of Fernie Water and Sewer Project 2016

This project consisted of excavating and installing deep water and sewer services in Fernie. TMM was responsible for proper signage and safety of the site.

Projects were completed for 3 avenues and one lane at Bossio road.

City of Fernie Tree Falling 2020

After setting up a safe work area on a local community road with flagging personnel, traffic control, tagged trees were fell and decked. The trees were then loaded onto logging trucks and relocated. We also offer right of way clearing and tree removal services with standard logging equipment such as bunchers, skidders and processors. For areas that do not require intensive clearing or logging, we can complete this work with an excavator mounted mulcher. Which is perfect for powerline right of ways and ingrown service roads.

Montane Development, 17 Lot Single Family Development—Fernie BC

The project at Montane Subdivision included installing a water distribution system to single family dwellings, sanitary sewer system pipe installs, storm sewer systems with culvert and concrete inlet/outlet structures, shallow utilities, street lighting and  paving and road works.

BC Forestry—Road Building / Deactivation of road

 Crown Spur / Terrace SFR / Nightmare Creek FSR

Transcendent Mining has completed several projects for BC Timber Sales and other branches of the BC Forestry. These projects consist of road construction in steep rocky terrain, with large fill slopes that require specific road building prescriptions to satisfy geotechnical requirements. Along with the road building, right of way clearing and drill and blast was also required on these projects. Seasonal and permanent road deactivation was also performed to leave the roads in a state that promotes environmental sustainability.
