The Gualcamayo Mine is an open pit/underground heap leach gold operation located in the San Juan province of Argentina. At the end of 2015, their reserves were at 967,000 million ounces proven with 4.5 million ounces indicated.

In 2008, the mine installed 7,400 meters of ENDURASTEEL ST2500 belting and 2,000 meters of ENDURAPLY EP630/3 belting.

ENDURASTEEL is designed to permit long conveyor centers with stretch of only 0.2%, and excellent flexibility around pulleys even at the highest tensions. ENDURASTEEL belts adhere to the strict German DIN standards for design and manufacturing. Additional combinations of cord diameter and pitch are available to meet special project requirements.

ENDURAPLY is designed for the heaviest mining applications. A polyester-nylon Crowfoot weave belt with high strength double cord weft ensures unequaled impact, puncture and rip protection in textile belting. The heaviest warp and weft strength in the industry assures low stretch and trouble-free reliability, and specially compounded high quality rubber skims provide superior shock absorption and high adhesive strength.
