“Knight Piésold has been involved with engineering and environmental studies for copper mines in Ecuador for decades, and we’re continuing to explore opportunities in the country’s rapidly emerging industry,” said Herrera.

“Expominas 2023 was a fantastic opportunity to share our expertise in tailings and mine waste management, and seeing the enthusiasm and positive outlook of everyone we’ve engaged with has driven us to continue working with the mining community in developing innovative solutions for a modern, responsible industry.”

Herrera added, “At Knight Piésold Peru, we’re focused on being the strategic partner of our clients, helping them identify and mitigate risks, navigate challenges, and achieve long-term success.
