This year, our company is celebrating 20 years, with a continuous and active presence in the development of engineering and management of industrial projects in cement, mining, agribusiness and manufacturing industries. Also, our current name SAXUM (from old Latin: “Solid Stone”, which for us is the metaphor of our service and quality) celebrates 5 years in December 2016.
September 9 Saxum was present at the XI International Convention on Business Opportunities, Exploration, Gelogy and Mining in Salta, Argentina.
Argentina Mining is the premium international meeting for the argentine mining industry. It is held every two years since 1996, and gathers this industry’s main leaders, informing on mining laws and politics, proyects evolution and exploration planning.
As in previous years, SAXUM was present at the most important meeting of the cement industry in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Internamerican Cement Federation -FICEM- held its XXXII Technical Congress in Cartagena, Colombia from September 5 to September 7, 2016. Representatives of the engineering and production areas of the cement corporations in Latin America and the Caribbean attended as well as suppliers of technology and services for the cement industry worldwide.
We are glad to announce that SAXUM has recently been awarded an important Gold Mining project by Minera Santa Cruz – Hochschild Mining in Argentina which will produce “100% Dore” in Unidad Minera San José.
This Project will be performed in two stages: the First Stage includes the verification and audit of the metallurgical process currently used by Hochschild Mining (Minera Santa Cruz), as well as the implementation of all the recommended changes (process re-engineering) that may arise from the verification.
The Second Stage involves a site survey and the development of Basic and Detail Engineering, as well as the preparation of bidding documents to allow the upgrade of the Dore plant, which should process 120 Mtons/day of concentrate from the flotation process to produce Dore 100%.
SAXUM has participated in the 58th IEEE-IAS/PCA 2016 Cement Industry Technical Conference, from May 15th to 19th in Dallas, TX. This is the the biggest cement industry conference of the year, with the latest ideas in sustainability and technology from industry experts.
SAXUM is developing the engineering for the new cement line for the Maceo plant of CEMEX Colombia. This engineering is performed by SAXUM in coordination with the main equipment supplier FLSmidth.
