The Cats-Cats Silver

Los Gatos is an open pit underground mine located in the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. In 2018, despite the presence of 12 surface capture wells, mining operations encountered high water flows underground. In addition, this water of more than 60 degrees celcius made the challenge even more difficult. Thanks to profile tracing tests, it was possible to isolate a permeable fault and to build 2 underground capture wells with greater flow rates than all the other wells combined.
