Pueblo Viejo

The construction of the Pueblo Viejo mine is the largest construction project in the Dominican Republic.

Project description:


The project is located 140 km from Santo Domingo and around the Dominican jungle with a rainy and temperate climate. The project had many stages during its development, the main one being to adapt quickly to the change that working abroad implied, since you had to learn the local legislation and culture. However, this critical point for the start of the project was successfully overcome, and months later we were able to grow, and make our staff grow both in their skills and in their attitudes. Our staff involved reached 600 collaborators at the peak of the work and we worked with 17 different nationalities.


Our services include:


  • Earthmoving, civil works, mechanical assembly of ore crushing and grinding areas, and the construction of five Stebbins acid storage tanks.
