New Video of EPCM Lindero’s Project by SAXUM

SAXUM Engineered Solutions, a full engineering and construction management company for the industry is proud to present distinctive aspects of the EPCM services of the Lindero gold mine Project in Argentina.

Our extensive experience, talented professionals and strong commitment with project objectives, allowed SAXUM to grow its client basis and recognition in the mining, cement, and oil & gas sectors. Large number of successful projects demonstrate the quality of our services.

SAXUM’s involvement in Lindero started at the prefeasibility stage back in 2013; in 2017, Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. acquired the project from Goldrock Mines Corp. and awarded SAXUM the update of its Basic Engineering and CapEx. In Dec 2017 SAXUM kicked-off the complete EPCM of Lindero.

With an initial budget of US$ 286 MM, Lindero is located in the Argentine Puna at 3,500 to 4,000 meters, and 170 miles due west of Salta City. It includes a 8 miles water pipeline, 9.5 MW Power Generation plant and all accommodation and services to properly fit over 1,000 workers on site.


Project Control is one of the pillars of EPCM services. Our project control team strongly focuses on cost savings and project schedule fulfilment throughout all phases of the project, from the preliminary designs to the start up. SAXUM’s Project Control Team offers their clients a wide range of project management services, which can be adapted to each project need.


The success of SAXUM’s EPCM service for Lindero is measured by our Project Management team’s ability of meeting project goals. Keeping project CAPEX within budget, in an environment of high inflation, like Argentina, calls for a cost focused and highly committed team in all project areas.

Several contractors, multiple suppliers from all around the world, and over 2.5 M man-hours mean a real challenge for our Quality Assurance department. Procedures, clear specifications and highly experienced personnel are the key to meeting these goals.

Main challenges for delivering Lindero project:

  • Achieving sufficient infrastructure for over 1000 workers on site,
  • Extreme project location and poor road conditions,
  • Harsh weather conditions,
  • Equipment and material lead time,
  • Meeting the milestones for each contractor, particularly regarding their interfaces,
  • Keep safety conditions throughout this large project extension, under extreme      weather and at high altitude.


Lindero’s engineering presented multiple challenges including the permanent coordination between the different technical disciplines. It required over 100 k man-hours, including basic and detailed engineering, procurement assistance, on site-engineering review and RFI services.

SAXUM engineering designs were fully oriented to cost and time saving under consideration of the extreme weather conditions and location of Lindero.

Our engineering services involved the full designs of diverse project areas, including the Mineral crushing plant, Agglomeration plant, Stacking System, Preparation of Reagents, ADR and SART plants, electric power distribution, fuel storage and distribution, camps, auxiliary project buildings, gas storage and distribution system, water storage, distribution and treatment system, and roads.


SAXUM’s Construction Management Team focuses on organization, planning and following up all involved tasks. SAXUM has the experience, know-how and resources to deal with sensitive environments and perform complete construction management activities under harsh conditions.

SAXUM prioritizes safety and environmental control, strong planning in advance, excellent project control, field supervision, contract management and administrative control. Our experience, strong focus to project objectives, and the mutually reinforcing joint-work between our professionals of all different departments, allows us to be the tailor-made solution for our customers’ EPCM projects.
