Agnico Eagle – Pinos Altos

Pino Altos mine is located 220 km west of Chihuahua city in a mountainous area in northern Mexico. Agnico Eagle operates several gold and silver deposits and high grade ore is processed on site in a traditional treatment plant.

Hydro-Resources was mandated to develop a procedure to reduce the response time to potential contamination of soil and underground water around the pumping stations and the plant. Injection tests allowed to establish an effective plan to identify a leak.
