Goldcorp Influx Management Plan
Goldcorp, the world’s second largest gold mining company, retained IBI Group for the development of an Influx Management Plan (IMP) to service its Cerro Negro mines located approximately 1.5 hours away from the Town of Perito Moreno in Santa Cruz Province, Patagonia, Argentina.
LocationPerito Moreno, Argentina
A sustainable community envisioned to service Patagonia’s Cerro Negro mines
The objective of the IMP is to provide guidance to Goldcorp as well as the Town of Perito Moreno in planning for the envisioned, project-induced growth, and to help manage the physical, environmental and economic impacts associated with this influx.
Goldcorp’s intent was to develop a sustainable community which is well integrated in the town’s existing urban fabric for its senior and management staff and their families. As a part of the IMP, IBI Group also designed (up to tender phase) the senior management housing complex and the new Goldcorp office complex in Perito Moreno.
