Client : Compagnie minière de Touissit

The Tighza Mining Complex is an underground gold project in Morocco’s Meknès-Tafilalet administrative region (Middle Atlas), 5 km from the city of M’rirt. To mine the deposit, the Touissit Mining Company mandated ASDR to design the mine’s infrastructure. The design criteria were defined in order to meet the client’s pre-established production targets.
