Leagold Mining Photography Project | Erich Saide
Leagold Mining - Los Filos Mining, Mexico
In earlier 2017, the Erich Saide photography team took a trip down to southern Mexico to capture and document the inner workings of the Los Filos gold mine in Mexico.
It was an interesting adventure and we learned a whole lot about the inner workings of gold mining. The mine has both an open pit mine as well as an underground mine and we left no stone unturned.
From underground blasting to pouring of the gold and everything in-between, we embedded ourselves into life on the mine and captured some very interesting images that not just anybody has seen before.
After a taxi-plane-car-private plane trip straight into the mountain tops near the mine (Indiana Jones style), we got straight to work capturing daily activities of the mine.
We were tasked with creating promotional and marketing material for new owners, Leagold and to highlight some of the industry leading processes that occur there.
