The route of the Concentrate Transport System (STC in Spanish) has a buried steel pipeline (maximum depth 2 m) of 7″ diameter over an extension of 121 kilometers. It extends from the head station located at the concentrator plant at 1610 masl, to the terminal station located at Punta Chungo at 20 masl. In order to identify the external risks of the pipeline route, a visual inspection is carried out over the STC area, with 24-hour patrol personnel.
