Project Highlights:

  • Estrategias de Manejo de Relaves

Tierra Group fue seleccionado para asistir a Goldcorp en la implementación mundial de Estrategias de Manejo de Relaves (TSS, por su sigla en inglés) en todos sus emplazamientos de relaves en operación ubicadas en Latinoamérica (México, Argentina y Guatemala). Tierra Group trabajó junto a Goldcorp y otra consultora internacional de ingeniería (elegida para implementar el programa en Canadá) para desarrollar una implementación coordinada y ejecutar estrategias para la TSS. El personal de Tierra Group organizó múltiples visitas a cada operación para llevar a cabo inspecciones de seguridad de presas, entrevistas con los encargados de las operaciones, proveer entrenamiento para el personal a cargo de la operación de cada instalación, y revisar cada operación para que se desarrolle dentro de las Mejores Prácticas de Manejo (BMPs, por su sigla en inglés) para el diseño, construcción, operación, y cierre de las instalaciones. El trabajo incluyó desarrollar evaluaciones de riesgo regulares con el aporte de todos los equipos de operación en cada mina sumado a los Ingenieros de Registro (EoR, por su sigla en inglés) de cada instalación y representantes corporativos, para asegurar de que todos los riesgos hayan sido identificados y cuantificados dentro de un completo registro de riesgos en toda la instalación. Las recomendaciones para la mitigación de riesgos en cada instalación fueron provistas en reportes desarrollados para cada instalación.
