Mina Karouni

Project Highlights:

  • Investigación geotécnica
  • Hidráulica
  • Hidrología
  • Análisis de estabilidad de taludes
  • Mapeo geológico

Tierra Group revisó y proporcionó recomendaciones para las pendientes del talud del tajo y llevó a cabo evaluaciones hidrológicas para el sistema de gestión de agua de los yacimientos de recursos 1 y 2 en la mina Karouni de Troy Resources (Karouni). Se proporcionaron recomendaciones de nivel de prefactibilidad para el desarrollo del tajo basadas en evaluaciones comparativas de funcionamiento en tajos cercanos y la perforación geotécnica complementaria para identificar las extensiones y los mecanismos de falla en unidades de roca saprolítica, intermedia y fresca.

Además, Tierra Group realizó el diseño de prefactibilidad del Hicks Pit que incluyó supervisión de investigación geotécnica y análisis de estabilidad de taludes.
