CONSTRUCTION PROJECT FOR ACCESS RAMP CONNECTING THE CABANASAS MINE WITH THE MINERAL
PROCESSING PLANT, SURIA. BARCELONE
CLIENT       IBERPOTASH, S.A.

The Cabanasas Mine is in Suria. The extraction shaft is immediately to the north of the town centre and the processing plant is to the south. Taking into account that the mineral from the extraction shaft at the Cabanasas Mine is transported to the factory by trucks which have to go through the little town of Suria and that there are two schools close to the shaft and the factory, Iberpotash S.A. decided to have a ramp built to allow the mineral to be transported from the mine to the factory, without causing a nuisance to the population of Suria.

The access ramp will link the Cabanasas Mine facilities, which are in the North Block of the El Tordell fault and at a depth varying between -300 m and -500 m asl, with the Iberpotash, S.A. facilities in Suria, in the South Block of the El Tordell fault and at a height of 300 m (asl).

The final layout of the ramp has been decided based on the following parameters:
  • Lithologic unit where it crosses the El Tordell fault.
  • Point where the ramp reaches the mine level (X: 398.684, Y: 4.634.084, Z: -465.76)
  • Point of execution of the mouth (X: 397.720, Y: 4.632.047, Z: 340.50)
  • Lithologic units crossed.
  • Avoiding the ramp going across the El Tordell fault near areas of cavities found in the Ramp-3 probe.
  • Maximum ramp slope of 20% (11.31º)
  • Minimum ramp length.
The ramp is divided into six sections based on its turns.
