El Aguila

Project Highlights:

  • Diseño de Depósito de Relaves
  • Evaluación Profesional por Expertos
  • Control de la Calidad

Tierra Group desarrolló una revisión del diseño de la ingeniería realizada por otros consultores de la expansión del depósito de almacenamiento de relaves. La revisión dio como resultado que el propietario se diera cuenta de un ahorro de costos de $650,000 sin comprometer la integridad del diseño de las instalaciones sobre el diseño original. Tierra Group además proporcionó el aseguramiento de la Calidad de la Construcción a tiempo completo para la expansión del depósito de relaves. Tierra Group lideró a un equipo multidisciplinario en la realización de un estudio de evaluación preliminar del filtrado de relaves para su almacenamiento en pila seca y su uso en rellenos de pasta subterráneos. Se elaboraron múltiples diseños de pila seca y se formularon recomendaciones basadas en los costos de construcción y los criterios operativos. Los resultados del estudio de evaluación preliminar proporcionaron a los ingenieros en minas de El Águila los datos necesarios para la planificación de la expansión subterránea de la mina. Además, Tierra Group estaba a cargo de los servicios de CQA durante la construcción de una presa de relaves de relleno de enrocado de 70 m de altura.
