Project Details


The NuevaUnión project consists of the combination of two deposits, El Morro and Relincho, into a single mine complex. The project involves three main phases. Phase 1a includes starting production of Relincho ores. Phase 1b corresponds to a transition to higher ore grades from El Morro. Phase 2 involves a gradual transition to the Relincho site, once El Morro's resources are exhausted.
