Jan 2015 | Constancia Megaproject Starts Copper Production

Starting August 2011, STRACON GyM has been engaged in an alliance with HudBay Peru to develop the Constancia mining project. The project had a total capital expenditure budget of US$ 1,700 million and started production of copper in December 2014.

STRACON GyM has contributed to the development of the mine through the construction of civil works such as access and haul roads, tailings dams, water storage reservoirs, sediment control structures, construction of waste dumps and the operation of the open-cut mine together with the maintenance of the mobile mining equipment fleet.

The civil earthworks construction period involved the participation of over 2,500 STRACON GyM employees from different specialties and backgrounds. The successful on-time on-budget execution also showed our strength in operating efficiently and promoting our safety culture. This safety culture allowed us to reach 7,412,819 man hours without lost-time incidents.

The Constancia mobile mining equipment fleet consists of 27m3 Hitachi shovels loading Caterpillar 793F 220 tonne capacity mining trucks, Caterpillar 994H front-end loaders, Caterpillar 24M graders, Caterpillar D10T bulldozers, and a large fleet of small ancillary equipment.

STRACON GyM, along with HudBay, will continue working to meet the challenges and demands of this large project, always adhering to the “Graña y Montero Style” which governs our quality and efficiency standards.



Jan 2015 | STRACON GyM commences development of the Shahuindo Project

STRACON GyM, a subsidiary of Grana y Montero Group is pleased to announce that it has received a Letter of Intent from Rio Alto Mining to establish and undertake open pit mining operations at the Shahuindo Project, located in the province of Cajabamba, department of Cajamarca, Peru.

According to the document signed on October 2, 2014, the two companies, Rio Alto and STRACON GyM, will enter into an agreement based on the successful alliance currently in place for the development of the La Arena gold project in the department of La Libertad .

During the first months of 2015, STRACON GyM will begin bulk earthworks activities for the construction of the mine operational facilities, prior to commencement of mining operations during 2016. Operational synergies will be created between the Shahuindo and La Arena projects.

Rio Alto estimates that Shahuindo will produce 100,000 ounces of gold per year, with a plant processing capacity of 10,000 tonnes per day. Rio Alto plans to expand this processing capacity significantly in the future.

STRACON GyM is committed to continue serving Rio Alto with the provision of high quality bulk earthworks and mining services which are efficient, safe and with minimal impact on the environment and local communities.

We thank Rio Alto for your continued confidence as its partner in the development of the Shahuindo Project.

Nov 2014 | Recognized for our commitment to research and innovation

Today we were honored with the highest recognition of the Peru 2021 Award for the Company’s Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development by our program: STIMULUS to the shared innovation which won the first place in the Multistakeholder category. The results were announced at a ceremony in charge of the Peru 2021 Association with the support of the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.

The program -in line with our “Grow and Share” sustainability model- promotes the development of a research culture in engineering in order to encourage innovation so the country's competitiveness can be improved. Also, it considers a comprehensive strategy that includes the organization between the State, the academy and the company, development of capacities and transmission of knowledge.

The initiatives included in the program are the following: the Graña y Montero Award for Research in Peruvian Engineering, the Engineering Portal (PI), Engineering Research and the “Structure your ideas” competition. Thanks to this innovative proposal, there are more members of the engineering community who are interested in research and have the capabilities to develop it. Also, the institutional links have been strengthened and the gap between the academy’s production and the business sector’s demand has been reduced.


Winners for the second year

Finally, it should be noted that this is the second year that we received the highest award of the competition. The Line 1 of the Lima Metro won in the last edition for its Culture program.

Nov 2014 | Debswana Diamond Company visits STRACON GyM

“Debswana Diamond Company", the world´s leading producer of diamonds located in Botswana – Africa, recently visited our El Brocal project, in order to learn about the "ASTiD Advisory System for Tired Drivers" program with the vision of applying this technology to their Orapa and Jwaneng mine sites.

ASTiD - assesses the level of tiredness in drivers while operating heavy equipment through an electronic and sensorial device capable of detecting the characteristics of the state of fatigue. The live information is transmitted via the 3G telecommunication system to a central monitoring control room which immediately alerts the mining operations team should there be a fatigue observation noted. This instant notification helps address the immediate situation and greatly reduces the likelihood of a fatigue related incident.

STRACON GyM is regarded as a world leader in managing operator fatigue. To achieve this goal, STRACON GyM is assisted by specialist companies such as WOMBATT, and Fatigue Management International Limited utilizing the ASTiD technology..
