Project: Pirquitas Silver Mine Dome

Jujuy, Argentina 2018

The Pirquitas Mine located in the Andes Mountains in Northern Argentina close to the Bolivian and Chilean borders is at 4,000m above sea level. This was Triodetic’s second Argentinian project.

Due to high winds at the mine, dust contamination from the mineral stockpile was affecting mine operations as well as the nearby town. The 64m diameter Triodetic dome effectively stopped the dust pollution.
