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 los emplazamientos de relaves en operación de Goldcorp en Latinoamérica (México, Argentina y Guatemala). Tierra Group trabajó junto a Goldcorp y otra compañía consultora de ingeniería mundial (elegida para implementar el programa en Canadá) para desarrollar una estrategia de implementación y   ejecución coordinada para el TSS. El personal de Tierra Group organizó muchas visitas a cada instalación para llevar a cabo inspecciones de la seguridad de los diques, entrevistas al personal de operaciones, proveer entrenamiento al personal encargado de las operaciones, y revisar cada operación de conformidad con 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.
