Context

With a challenging perimeter and over 100 intruder incursions every month, a Barkers mining client in Papua New Guinea faced constant threat from criminals looking to profit from illegal mining.

To protect their product, people and revenue, the mine needed the most effective protective fencing system available. And with the mine spanning a rugged, remote landscape, fencing must cope with difficult topography in addition to persistent attempted breaches.

Product supplied

Barkers supplied its StronGuard™ palisade fencing system to defend against penetration. As it is capable of installation on everything from flat land to 28-degree slopes, it could be installed on the challenging perimeter.

Following manufacturing in Staffordshire and a journey by sea, rainforest and dirt roads, 11,500 meters of 3m high StronGuard™ complete with razor wire topping, cantilever gates and high security pedestrian gates arrived at the client’s mine in Papua New Guinea.

Throughout its entire course, the system maintained a maximum 50mm gap between the fence and the ground which was possible due to the flexibility provided by StronGuard™. CCTV, electric fence topping and microphonic cable detection were also installed for extra security.

2,500 metres of StronGuard™ was mounted on anti-dig fibre-filled concrete plinths, which prevented intruders from accessing the mining site and allowed contractors to painlessly move the perimeter boundary, while a further 3000 metres snaked through thick rainforest.

The mine also used Barkers’ aesthetically pleasing and high-performance SecureGuard 358 mesh fencing for their internal refinery plant, complete with automatic swing and cantilever gates.

The demarcation solution has successfully protected the mine from unauthorised access and reduced intruder incursions.
