Visit El Teniente mine

El Teniente Mine is one of the largest underground operation in the world. It consists of several small mines that share transportation and processing. In the visit, the team visited the Esmeralda mine, were they could watch different activities like: train transportation and operation, construction of tunnels and material handling in ore passes. They also visited an equipment teleoperation room.   The visit allowed some of the team researchers new to Mine Planning to obtain first-hand experience from a real mine, and the complexity of its operation. This will...

Seminars and workshops

Workshop mine planning

We hosted an open workshop, attended by over 80 mine planning practitioners, in order to share with the industry the most recent academic advances on subjects pertaining to the DEPLAMIN project. The event included a panel discussion and social activities where practitioners, academic researchers and students, were able to meet, know what the others are doing, and exchange ideas and opinions regarding advances in the field.
