Climax Mine




Services Provided

Construction Materials Testing, Geotechnical Engineering


  • 2007, Freeport McMorRan initiated construction to restart the Climax Molybdenum Mine on Freemont Pass near Leadville, CO.
  • K+A provided geotechnical engineering and construction materials testing services during two phases of that construction; the initial 1 1/2 years of construction and the restart of the project in 2010.
  • K+A set up an on-site field laboratory during the initial 1 1/2 years of work, and our Frisco Office (now named Summit County) performed construction services during the restart phase of the project.
  • Having a successfully run on-site laboratory trailer was critical in providing a quick turnaround for laboratory soils and concrete testing results.
