Argen Mining, our own Grindex distributor in Argentina, participated in an exposición and showcase of Grindex products at Arminera 2013, held this year in May 7-9, Buenos Aires.
Arminera is one of the most important fairs of the international mining sector, drawing in participants from all over the globe: Germany, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, USA, Finland, Britain, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Russia and South Africa, some 10.000 visitors.
Carlos Perez, Area Manager for Argentina, Francisco García of Grindex International, and Technical Support Manager Per Nilsson paid a visit to the Pascua-Lama goldmine in March of this year. On-site, at an altitude of 4000 meters, they gave technical training, courses and presentations on how and why to use Grindex products.
The Pascua-Lama mine belongs to the Barrick Gold Corporation, the largest gold mining company in the world. The mining project includes a 4500 meter tunnel that links Argentina and Chile through the Andes mountains, where Grindex Matador pumps have worked with great success.
