Quellaveco is an area with high rainfall during the rainy season (from December to March). Detachments of blocks or mass landslides due to weather events occur regularly. Blocks from 1 to 1.5 meters in diameter affected the protection of the Overland Belt and consequently stopped the transport and crushing process.
A drape system with Minax 80/4 mesh was installed in the endangered area.
The solution is based on the data provided by the client about the blocks with high landslide potential in the upper slope zone of the Overland Belt.
