BluMetric Awarded $1.5 Million Mining-Sector Contract

OTTAWA, Sept. 28, 2016 /CNW/ - BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX-V: BLM) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a $1.5 million contract by a Northern Ontario client, to start immediately, and run until approximately July, 2017.

BluMetric is becoming more active in all stages of the analysis, planning, construction, and execution of solutions for clients.  In addition, BluMetric's deep experience has enabled it to develop a unique and innovative application of barrier-wall technology to intercept water.

In this project, the primary focus of the work will be water resources and civil engineering, as well as hydrogeology for a water management project.  More specifically, BluMetric will conduct field investigations, including drilling wells and boreholes, excavating profiles and test pits, sampling groundwater and surface water, and conducting a pilot test for an innovative barrier-wall application.  Subsequent design work will include a full-scale barrier wall, water storage ponds, pumping stations, pipelines and wells for interception, collection and storage of impacted water prior to treatment.

"Our business development strategy has been to focus on sensitive and challenging environments like the north; on sectors with strong defined needs, such as mining; and on areas of increasing demand, such as hydrogeology," said Roger Woeller, CEO of BluMetric.  "This has resulted in significant contract awards in our target sectors, and is powering solid ongoing growth from the services side with significant potential for our systems delivery side."
