On July 16 in Salta, Argentina, the Anddes Argentina team was in charge of a technical meeting to present the design of the Leaching Pad or process zone engineered to extract gold and silver from the mineral in the Lindero project. The activity took place in one of the COPAIPA rooms with the presence of the Secretary of Mining, Daniel Blasco, professionals from the Salta Ministry of Mining and the Professional Council of Engineers and Related Professions.
