Due to the generation of pollution in Antucoya Mine, there is a dust collection zone which is close to the crushing area. This fine ore is required to be returned to the CV010 conveyor belt, which feeds the agglomeration process (see the image below). The return of ore to the conveyor belt must be at a controlled rate, without generating major emissions to the environment and at low cost. In addition, the fine dust fed to the conveyor belt must not contain other materials (wastes, remains of other materials, etc.), since it will continue downstream to the agglomerationleaching process.
The solutions that have been evaluated are expensive.
