  • Evaluate downtime as a result of wind direction and weather conditions over a longer duration of time ( a 17-week period)
  • Evaluate scheduling and staging of dump trailers to meet weekly production targets
  • Evaluate equipment production rates as a result of various excavation methods and equipment configurations
  • Continue to evaluate odor/emission management using spray covers over a longer duration.
