Pilar Gold Mine - CCA Complex

About Caeté Complex

The Caeté Mining Complex (CCA) is composed of two underground mines (Roça Grande Mine and Pilar Mine) that utilize a combination of mechanized cut and fill and long-hole stope mining methods. Ore produced from these mines is transported to the 2,200 tonnes per day gravity, flotation and CIL treatment of flotation concentrate processing plant adjacent to the Roça Grande mine, a total distance of approximately 50 kilometres by road from the Pilar mine.


The Caeté mining complex, which includes the Pilar and Roça Grande mines and the Caeté Plant, is located in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, 50 kilometers east of the city of Belo Horizonte.
