Trafigura Pte Ltd - Ferroniquel Project, Cuba

During 2022, GCS carried out a geotechnical and hydrogeological review as part of a pre-feasibility study for a proposed nickel-laterite mine in Moa, south-eastern Cuba. This included a site visit to visually assess the geotechnical and hydrogeological conditions and a review of a large data base of historical technical reports of the site.

Based on the site visit and the evaluation of previous site investigation reports, GCS Geotechnical provided foundation recommendations for the proposed mine plant infrastructure, a pit wall stability analysis and recommendations, and a material evaluation for construction.
