South America: Pascua-Lama gold

Since 2012, SRK has worked at the Pascua–Lama project, on the border of Chile and Argentina, owned by Barrick Gold, providing geotechnical advice for the process plant foundations and acting as the Technical Manager of the binational tunnel construction. Within this context, SRK has worked on blasting design optimisation, hydrogeological modelling and water management during the construction and operation of the tunnel, and environmental assessment of tunnel wastes. On the Pascua side, SRK has used strict rock-structure interaction analysis to optimise the concrete structure of the crusher building and the shafts.
