DSI Chile contributes to the successful Development of a new Gold MineApprox. 105km from the city of Rivera in the North of Uruguay, there is a 7km long geological fault zone in which three major gold deposits have been discovered: Arenal, San Gregorio and Santa Teresa. Up to now, more than 800,000 ounces of gold have been mined in these three deposits.
The Arenal area is currently being expanded by a new underground mine. In order to reach the deep gold deposits, a 2,000m long access gallery is being constructed. For stabilizing the underground excavation work, DSI Chile supplied a large amount of different ground support products from their plant in Santiago de Chile. DSI supplied products such as friction bolts, cable bolts and many other products needed for stabilization.
Furthermore, DSI’s experienced employees participated in some of the meetings held by the mine operator, Orosur Mining, in order to impart their technical know-how to the mine personnel and to ensure optimum performance of the products used in the mine. This way, DSI contributes systematically to the success of Orosur Mining Inc.’s new project.
