Aguas Teñidas is an underground massive sulphide deposit typical of the Iberian Pyrite Belt, who main reserve is copper ore.
Magdalena Mine is 7 kilometres from Aguas Teñidas and can be accessed via an internal road within the Sandfire MATSA facilities in Almonaster la Real.
The ore processing plant has three lines able to process more than 4.5 million tonnes of polymetallic and copper ore per year.
Sandfire MATSA has two paste plants, one at Aguas Teñidas and the other at Magdalena. It also has a shotcrete plant which produces and supplies this product to the two mines.
This installation is used to store approximately 60% of the tailings resulting from the processing of the ore in the form of paste.
