Project: Carmen de Andacollo Copper Mine Dome

Elqui, Chile 2010

This 92 meter diameter stockpile dome located in Northern Chile was the fourth dome supplied to this miner after Highland Valley Copper. Dust control was a huge factor at this mine where dust was affecting mine operations as well as the nearby town. Environmental legislation in Chile requires mining companies to cover their mineral stockpile in order to contain and prevent dust pollution.

The dome was installed while the stockpile was working without the need to stop operations. Another advantage of our domes is exactly this, the efficiency, speed and safety of installation from the outside, using man-lifts and baskets, without stopping mining operations.

Triodetic has a long safety track record at its manufacturing plant as well as its installation projects around the world.
