Isabella Pearl

Project Highlights:

  • Revisión de Diseño de Pilas de Lixiviación

Tierra Group realizó una revisión técnica de la instalación de lixiviación (por su sigla en inglés HLF) Isabella Pearl propiedad de Gold Resource Corporation. La mina Isabella Pearl está ubicada en el extremo oeste del distrito minero Santa Fe en el cinturón de oro Walker Lane aproximadamente 6 millas al noreste de Luning, Nevada, en el Condado de Mineral. El HLF tendrá un rendimiento nominal de 8.000 toneladas por día durante un período de seguimiento de 15 meses de desarrollo de preproducción y construcción. Tierra Group realizó la revisión con los siguientes objetivos:

  • Revisión de pares del diseño y dibujos de ingeniería existente para asegurar el diseño de ingeniería propuesto es adecuada y de conformidad con las prácticas aceptadas de ingeniería;
  • Identificar oportunidades para "optimizar" el diseño para reducir capital o costos de operación; y
  • Identificar los riesgos asociados (regulatorio, financiero, horario de construcción, etc.) con aplicación de optimización.

Tierra Group identificó una serie de oportunidades de optimización y diseño proporcionado recomendaciones de mejora para reducir potencialmente los costos de capital o de operación.
