13 International Mining Congress Sonora 2018

The 13 International Mining Congress of Sonora, one of the most outstanding mining events in America, will bring together Mining professionals, companies and service providers from around the world for 3 days of learning, discussion and networking. Golder’s team is looking forward to contributing to this important knowledge share through the following technical presentations:

The Role Dismantling Plays in Mine Closure Under the Cyanide Code
(El Rol De Desmantelamiento Bajo El Código De Cianuro Como Parte De Cierre)
Presented by: Kent Johnejack, Principal and Senior Consultant (Tucson, US)
Date: Oct 25, 2018
Time: 12:00 – 12:30 p.m., Room B

There is a misconception that dismantling of mines and mine closure are equivalent under the International Code of Management of Cyanide (Code). This talk will explain which facilities and activities are required under the Code, as well as which related costs typically require a financial assurance mechanism under the Code.

Records of Construction for Tailing and Heap Leach Facilities
(Registros de Obra Construida en Depositos de Jales y Patios de Lixiviacion)
Presented by: Jesus E. Romero,  Senior Engineer (Tucson, US)
Date: Oct 25, 2018
Time: 12:30 – 1:00 p.m., Room A

The official regulations for design, construction and operation of tailings and heap leach facilities in Mexico, don’t include a detailed breakdown of all the information that should be collected during construction. To understand the benefits of having better information from the construction processes and thus improve possible future expansion plans, make sure you attend this presentation.
