The La Colosa project, located in the High Andes of Colombia, is considered to be the largest gold mining project in the northern Andes and the largest single private infrastructure project in Colombia.
Of particular challenge are the overall dimensions of this project and the interdependence of the different activities (geology – mining – engineering – mineral economics) which determine the viability of the project.
iC acts as consultant to the various project departments (Geology – Mining – Infrastructure) and is involved in geologic and geotechnical studies covering different topics, such as rock mass characterisation, structural geology and 3-D structural geologic modelling of the planned open pit area as well as the associated infrastructure sites.
