|PCT/CL2014/000007||BASUALTO LIRA, Guillermo||BASUALTO LIRA, Guillermo|
The invention relates to extractor/feeder equipment to be installed at the extraction points, in methods of underground exploitation by: block/panel caving, sub-levels and others. It consists of two platforms mounted on a chassis with wheels, the rear platform being partially mounted on the front platform. The broken mineral is placed on said platforms. The equipment is actuated in a back-and-forth movement by means of hydraulic cylinders. First, both platforms advance to the transport gallery (GT), extracting a portion of mineral; the front platform then moves back, sliding beneath the rear platform which remains static; the front platform then advances alone with another portion of mineral; and the cycle is finished with both platforms moving back, once more feeding the conveyor. When the platforms advance, the volume extracted/transported is replaced by the overlying volume, first over the rear platform, then over the front platform; as they move back, they feed the conveyor arranged in the GT so that the extracted volumes are filled.

|PCT/CL2013/000074||BASUALTO LIRA, Guillermo||BASUALTO LIRA, Guillermo|
A system for handling and separating minerals by size in the method for exploitation by block/panel caving. A drag conveyor (TA) operates in the transport galleries (GT), supplied by the extraction points (PE), said conveyor consisting of transverse bars which are mutually interspaced and connected by two lines of traction chains which drag the coarse mineral over a metal floor, to a grinder or a transfer shaft. The fraction of the TA which returns empty travels on the roof of the GT. On both ends of the TA, there are two pairs of wheels that are used to direct the return thereof. The front wheels are driving and move the TA by traction. On the floor of the TA, between the PE, there are grids so as to separate the fine fraction, said fine fraction being transferred via shafts until it reaches a transport sub-level, the fine material being unloaded onto a conveyor belt.

|7.||WO||WO/2014/169400 - SYSTEM OF AIR-SPARGING VALVES IN ELECTROLYTIC CELLS, WHICH REDUCE PRODUCTION LOSSES CAUSED BY BREAKS OR PHYSICAL DAMAGE, AND OPERATING METHOD||23.10.2014||
||PCT/CL2014/000013||NEW TECH COPPER SpA||AYLWIN GÓMEZ, Pedro Alejandro|
Microporous or perforated air-sparging tubes, which are housed in the floor of electrolytic cells for producing metals, are vulnerable to breaks and physical damage as a result of being struck accidentally by anodes or cathodes or the premature separation of the cathodic deposit, as well as to damage caused by operations carried out inside the cells. As a result of this damage, as a minimum air sparging must be stopped, reducing the quality of the metal produced, or the production process must be stopped for repair work to be carried out, resulting in production losses. The valves of the system are housed at the air inlet of the front and rear distributors, as well as at both ends of each of the microporous or perforated tubes, and each of the tubes can be isolated from the system and continue air sparging even if one or more of said tubes are broken or damaged, such that production without air sparging occurs less frequently and operation shutdowns for damage repair are less common, thereby reducing production losses. The operating method begins with the detection of the air injection line that has failed, followed by the shutting-off of the front and rear valves of said line, and subsequently the carrying out of a visual inspection to check that bubble size and homogeneity have been re-established.
