Jean-François St-Laurent is a senior geotechnical engineer with over 10 years of experience in mine waste management and mine site reclamation. He has performed numerous risk assessments, tailings storage facilities statutory inspections and safety reviews. Jean-François has experience with modeling embankment behavior/deformation and assessing tailings liquefaction potential. He has completed numerous seepage assessments in saturated and unsaturated medium; embankment slope stability analysis under static and pseudo-static loading conditions and heat transfer modeling by conduction, advection and convection mechanisms. He oversaw detailed geotechnical investigations (i.e.: frozen core drilling, CPTu soundings, Vane testing, consolidation testing, triaxial testing) to assess the nature and extent of deformation features observed on a filtered tailings stack in permafrost area and to proceed with tailings storage facility capacity increase or reclamation. Jean-François has been involved in preparation of detailed engineering design and preparation of design plans and specifications for numerous mining companies. He’s been a member of a team of experts who carried out a peer review of a Siberian mine waste management.
