A 80000 m2, 3.5 m high embankment for a container yard was constructed on the right margin of the Paraná de las Palmas River in Zárate, Argentina. An aditional temporary embankment, 3.5 m high, was put on top of it to speed up the consolidation process of underlaying soft Postpampeano clays and Read more... about Slope failure at the Paraná shoreline, Argentina

Arenal Deeps is an Au mine located near Minas de Corrales, 400km north of Montevideo, Uru- guay. The Arenal deposit is a subvertical fault zone, 6m – 30m wide, which was exploited via an open pit op- eration from 2004 until 2009 and underground since then. Underground mining is developed using Read more... about Arenal Deeps: application of numerical methods to two- and three- dimensional stability analyses of underground excavations
