Visiting Peru

A team from HR Wallingford and the Fundación visited several of our stakeholders in Lima and Cajamarca in February 2019.

Preview of DAMSAT

We showed them the first version of DAMSAT, our monitoring tool for dams and other tailings deposits. Feedback was very positive and useful. We will implement suggestions in the second release of the tool.

Site visits in the pilot area

We also had the opportunity to visit some of our sites in the pilot area. All is ready to  install the GNSS equipment. This equipment will measure in-situ possible movements of tailings dams in two of our pilot sites.
