TMB Plant Hire Limited was appointed as surface maintenance contractor in 2007 at Galmoy Mine, Galmoy, Co. Kilkenny, Ireland and became the main contractor for the surface works associated with Mine Closure and Rehabilitation of the Mine Site and Tailings Management Facility (TMF) up until late 2015.

TMB were tasked with the following closure works:

  1. Capping of the TMF surface and grass seeding.
  2. Installation of the perimeter drains.
  3. Installation of the final drainage system including the construction of the wetland and surface water lagoon.
  4. Rehabilitation of the industrial area of the mine site.
  5. Backfilling of vent shafts and mine portal.
  6. Cleaning of the water treatment plant and backfill plant.
  7. Final landscaping of the mine site.

TMB under the guidance of Director Eamonn Darmody, who was a very hands on site manager, carried out the prescribed closure work, often in very difficult ground conditions to a very high standard. Their safety record is to be highly commended as there were no accidents over the eight year period.

As former MD of Galmoy Mine l have no hesitation recommending TMB for similar work where attention to detail and a high standard of work are required
