Providing the right solutions for mine reclamation and closure projects.
Profile® manufactures the most comprehensive line of products for reclamation of drastically disturbed soils. Throughout the world, we partner with mining companies to develop and implement the best solutions for major projects including mines in North America, the Amazon jungle, the Andes Mountains and at elevations of over 4,500 meters in Australasia. No matter how difficult the challenge, Profile’s products and on-site consultative support from accredited industry professionals assure peace of mind knowing we can help you restore your site to its natural condition and:
- Achieve superior soil stabilization and longer lasting, more complete erosion control
- Establish native species
- Reduce costs with proven techniques to establish vegetation on poor to marginal soils
- Support sustainable restoration using environmentally friendly technologies
To help you plan, you’ll find the industry’s most comprehensive collection of erosion control product specifications here.
Extreme Slopes & Waterways
Flexible Growth Medium™ (FGM™) have functional longevities of greater than 12 months, and are commonly used to stabilize steep closes (<1H:1V), long slogs, rough slopes, highly erosive soils, and when rainfall is expected within 48 hours of application. The ultimate performer is Flexterra® High Performance-Flexible Growth Medium™ (HP-FGM™). For extended protection, CocoFlex™ ET-FGM™ has a functional longevity of up to two years. These products are also appropriate for extremely dry conditions. The GreenArmor™ System offers an environmentally superior way to protect high-discharge waterways and steep slopes, and can replace more expensive rock or concrete in areas of concentrated flows. It starts with Futerra® TRM and includes Flexterra HP-FGM infill.
Moderate to Steep Slopes
ProMatrix™ EFM™ provides class-leading erosion control effectiveness and meets or exceeds all industry testing standards for Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM) products. A wide variety of hydraulic mulches and ProPlus® Mulch Additives offer a great deal of flexibility in meeting varied site characteristics that include moderate gradients with relatively short slope lengths.
BioCover™ SS is a hydraulically applied engineered matrix designed to provide up to 4 months of cost-effective dust suppression, soil stabilization and erosion control on high dust-producing projects. It is non-toxic and biodegradable, and once cured creates a durable, yet flexible bond with the substrate, as opposed to rigid crusts developed by inorganic stabilizers.
Soil testing, interpretation of the test results, and incorporating remedies to improve soils should be a fundamental part of any reclamation or revegetation project. Without a proper understanding of soils or substrates considered for use as growing media to establish vegetation, you can’t predict potential project success. Profile Soil Solutions Software (PS3) provides access to conduct Free Soil Tests along with directions on proper soil collection for testing. PS3 also assists in the interpretation of the soil test and offers prescriptive application rates of various agronomic formulations based on key soil properties such as texture, classification, pH, nutrient levels, organic matter content, electroconductivity, sodium absorption ratio and potentially elevated levels of harmful salts and metals. Patent-pending ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) has been designed as a cost-effective topsoil alternative that accelerates the development of depleted soils/substrates with low organic matter, low nutrient levels and limited biological activity.
