Cerro Vanguardia is an Au-Ag mine located in the central plains of Santa Cruz, Argentina. The deposit comprises several veins 3.5 - 10m wide and 19km long. The exploitation is carried out by means of open pits 100 - 240m deep. More than fifty pits will be developed during the project lifetime.

Cerro Vanguardia is an Au-Ag mine located in the central plains of Santa Cruz, Argentina. The deposit consists of several veins 3.5-10m wide and 19km long, related to epithermal mineralization of the Chon-Aike formation by Jurassic volcanism episodes. The exploitation is carried out by means of Read more... about Cerro Vanguardia Open Pit Mining: Database Management for Stability Analyses
