Project Description

Project: El Pachon Mine – Avalanche Control Planning

Client: Ruiz y Asociados Consultora

The El Pachon project is located in the San Juan Province of Argentina. Dynamic provided a detailed study, as a continuation of an earlier landscape level review, of the avalanche risk to the mine area and access roads. We provided avalanche atlas mapping and identified preferred access routes and options to mitigate avalanche risk through earthworks and structural defenses. We created an avalanche safety plan and avalanche control plan for construction and operating phases of the road and advised on access road snow clearing requirements.
