Boleo Mine

Project Highlights:

  • Independent Technical Review

Tierra Group performed an independent technical peer review of the Boleo Mine’s operating tailings storage facility design. In doing so Tierra Group identified several design modifications that when implemented for future stages will reduce sustaining capital cost expenditures by several million dollars, without compromising the engineering design’s technical integrity, or dam safety.
