Support for the closure of the Zanja mine (Peru)

Assistance and strategic research to support the mine closure by sectors, in Cajamarca, Peru.

The first EDAFOTEC project in Peru.

The purpose of this project involved the extensive sampling of over 200 hectares of the La Zanja mine and its subsequent analysis.

The information obtained from the geological materials enabled us to reduce the number of analytical determinations to be performed in subsequent interventions, whilst also serving as a basis from which to determine the closure area needing specific restoration interventions.
