Anne Clayton

Senior Geological / Geotechnical Engineer


Anne Clayton M.Sc., P.Eng., has a focus on rock mechanics, mining geotechnics, and investigation of complex geological environments; she is also an active leader in BGC’s Rock Mechanics Team. She applies the principle of getting the geology right to mining operations and development projects, linear infrastructure and energy. Anne specializes in the design and support of open pit mining projects and has gained a broad-range of mining experience including geotechnical monitoring, rock and tailings storage facility design and operation, dewatering / depressurization of mine facilities, and ground control / geohazard management. She brings a deep understanding of geotechnical site investigation to her work gained through years of conducting and managing rock focused and multi-disciplinary campaigns, including the collection and interpretation of borehole televiewer data. Anne has led monitoring programs for block-cave induced subsidence and bedrock instability. She has explored all across BC, and in Alaska, South Carolina, Mexico, the Dominican Republic through project work and provided off-site engineering services for many other jurisdictions. Anne’s post graduate degree focused on characterizing, monitoring and stability modelling of a large bedrock instability associated with a mining development project in British Columbia. She has a special interest in understanding the link between geological environments, the spatial distribution / density of geotechnical model data inputs and the reliability of engineering assessments.
