Laddertube installation at Dolores Mine in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Mining at Dolores is by standard open pit methods using shovels, loaders, and haul trucks and by underground methods using sub level open stoping and ramp haulage to the surface. The mine uses conventional cyanide heap leaching to produce gold and silver doré. The high grade portion of the mined material is processed through the pulp agglomeration treatment plant and is conveyed with the crushed lower grade portion of the mined material to the heap leach pads for leaching.
To date Safescape have supplied Dolores mine with just over 281m of Safescape Laddertube. Back in 2019 Safescape attended site and trained site personnel in the process of installing Safescape Laddertube.
