Project Role

Knight Piésold developed an update of the mine´s conceptual closure plan and cost estimate for Minas Argentinas S.A. One of the client’s objectives was to determine costs to implement the closure plan.

Knight Piésold completed a final report that reflected all the changes since the last work. Knight Piésold contextualized the final report, not as a new Conceptual Closure Plan, but as a document of the Conceptual Closure Plan of the Gualcamayo Project, which will complement the original Environmental Impact Assessment.
