We act in the field of Mining, Sanitation, Energy and Infrastructure markets.
GeoHydroTech will always be a consulting and design company that, through the qualification of its team and commitment to its clients, will be able to meet the challenges presented and develop complete engineering solutions that establish a benchmark standard of excellence.
During these 25 years, we have had large companies that operate in the Mining, Sanitation, Energy and Infrastructure markets as clients. All the projects we developed have been successful, and no problem has ever been registered in any of them.
One of our relevant projects deserves to be highlighted: Santo Antônio Tailings Storage Facility, owned by Kinross Brasil Mineração, successor of Rio Paracatu Mineração (RPM). Located in the municipality of Paracatu / MG, this dam can be considered the largest in Brazil in terms of volumes of compacted earthfill and stored tailings. It is 5 km long and 106 m high in its main section. Since 1987, 20 dam raising stages have been built, adding up to more than 40 million cubic meters of compacted earthfill, allowing RPM / Kinross to store about 600 million cubic meters of tailings.
The designs of all stages were carefully elaborated, meeting all Brazilian and international standards, and having been audited several times by world-renowned consultants. In addition, the monitoring and operation of the dam has always been done exquisitely and closely followed by our professionals. There has never been an incident and the mining company has never had to halt the operation because of any dam problems. All this made it to be considered by FEAM, the environmental agency of Minas Gerais state, as the benchmark in Tailing Dams to be followed there.
