La Trinidad

Project Highlights:

  • Balance de Aguas
  • Análisis de Estabilidad de Taludes
  • Diseño de Expansión del Patio de Lixiviación
  • Análisis Hidrológicos
  • Diseño de Desvíos
  • Diseño de Líneas

Tierra Group comenzó a trabajar en la Trinidad proporcionando recomendaciones de construcción del patio de lixiviación y un balance hídrico. Tierra Group continuó su apoyo con un diseño de expansión del patio de lixiviación, análisis de estabilidad de taludes, análisis hidrológicos, diseño de desvíos, diseño de líneas y diseño de tuberías de recolección de soluciones de lixiviación. Los resultados de los análisis de estabilidad de taludes proporcionaron a Oro Gold con un plan de apilamiento seguro para maximizar la capacidad de almacenamiento de mineral. El análisis del balance hídrico y las ideas "fuera de lo común" hicieron posible eliminar la construcción de una pileta de contingencia adicional lo que resulto en costos significativos de construcción de la expansión del patio de lixiviación.
