Mining

The objective of UTEC Minas is to develop relevant research projects that ensure the competitiveness of the national mining industry in both medium and long terms. This is obtained through an increase in safety and operational efficiency, the reduction of losses, and the implementation of modern management systems.

We are focused on the needs and technological challenges of the sector over medium term. The research is born from the challenges of Peruvian mining from the perspective of the industry and focuses on enhancing the competitiveness and productivity of mining companies and their related services.

Research projects in current execution cover topics such as refractory mineral leaching, treatment of mining effluent, robotics, mining without water and physical pre-concentration (ore sorting) of low grade minerals.
