Piping Technology & Products, Inc., designed and manufactured 150 special embed plate pieces for 4 gold mines in Cajamarca, a province of northwestern Peru.
At an altitude of 4,700 m, this complex of four gold mines and processing facility is Latin America’s largest gold producer. The gold district is a 10 by 4-km zone of altered rocks with a belt of Tertiary volcanic that extends through Peru.
This project involved the production of one hundred fifty, 93″ x 27″ x 1″ embed plates which required the use of 80,000 pounds of steel and anchors. The custom designed, carbon steel, embed plates are to provide stability for the feed openings of four mineshaft reclaim tunnels and are scheduled to be put to use immediately.
