At PERUMIN mining convention

On the 19th of September we were at the second largest Mining Convention in the world, PERUMIN 34. The event was organized by the Institute of Mining Engineers of Peru (IIMP).

Hans Sánchez of FUNAINHI presented DAMSAT in the forum of Technology, Innovation and Sustainability. During his presentation, he explained how satellite applications can help to monitor tailings dams and reduce the risk related to these structures.

The convention was a good opportunity to share experiences with other groups developing technologies for mining applications both in Peru and in other countries.
