Proyecto de Oro Midas

Project Highlights:

  • Diseño del almacenamiento de relaves
  • Ingeniero geotécnico
  • Ingeniero civil
  • Hidrología en todo el sitio
  • Balance de aguas en todo el sitio
  • Diseño del desvío
  • Estudio de prefactabilidad

El proyecto de Midas Gold se encuentra en el remoto centro de Idaho Rockies, cerca de la ciudad de Yellow Pine.  Se trata de un proyecto de oro y antimonio de campos marrones con tres pozos abiertos y un rendimiento previsto de 22.000 tpd, junto con desafiantes limitaciones del terreno y el medio ambiente. Tierra Group completó el diseño de factibilidad preliminar para la instalación de almacenamiento de relaves propuesta, las desviaciones de agua y la gestión del agua en todo el sitio, incluido el contenido relevante para el informe técnico de prefactibilidad conforme al NI-43-101. Tierra  Group también completó los diseñosde TSF  y desvío de agua  y completó la estimación de costos de recuperación para un estudio de factibilidad compatible con NI 43-101 publicado en enero de 2020. Tierra Group  también  completó análisis de ingeniería y diseño para permisos  federales y estatales.

El TSF estará revestido con un sistema de revestimiento geosintéticocompuesto. Se construirá un contrafuerte de roca en varias etapas durante el desarrollo del proyecto. La desviacións redirigirá  un arroyo de montaña perenne alrededor del TSF. Tierra Group continúa apoyando a Midas completando un  diseño detallado y permitiendo el apoyo.
