Protection of ecosystems

We are aware of the great diversity of species in the region and the importance of ecosystems in providing the environmental services necessary for our operation. For this reason, since 2014 we have developed annual monitoring days, in order to identify possible variations that allow us to establish factors that threaten individuals and their natural habitat, thus implement measures that contribute to conserving, protecting and maintaining the sensitive species and ecosystems of the mine.

As a result of these studies, at least a dozen species of amphibians, reptiles and mammals have been identified. In addition, the sighting of 113 species of stationary and migratory birds.
