They Move 400,000 tons of material a day at this mine

If the billion tons of new over burden all has to be moved it would take them 2500 days to move it.

I don't know how much needs to really be moved. Some of it I am sure can be move by scrapers and dozers. The 400,000 number I am sure is just what runs through their haul truck conga line.

Cave ins, landslides, other stuff is common in mining. It will sort itself out.

Beside Mexico sells lots of silver...so does south America
