Minera Pensilvania Gold Mineral gm Conformacion de la brigada de emergencia 2

We are proud to report the creation of the emergency brigade in Vereda Guayaquil with the collaboration of MinexCorp and Minera Pensilvania Gold & Mineral workers.

A group of people from the project were trained in first aid to act before, during and after an emergency. From now on, they must act as promoters in the preventive area and act in a timely manner when necessary.

The emergency brigade must be familiar with the facilities, evacuation routes, meeting points, and alarms. These people are trained to minimize the consequences of any eventuality.

We continue working to make the project safe for all our collaborators.
