THE TESORERO CABLE

The cable from the Hernán Cortés mine in El Tesorero in the Sierra de Baza (1,430m) was 15.4km long with a midway construction at 7.73km called 'El Ángulo' at 1,323m which handled the day to day running as well the maintenance of the equipment and cable. The cable then continued a further 7.67km to the Loader at Km108. (Distances as the crow flies).

The double aerial cable system was by Pöhlig and Adolfo Bleichart and was in two sections. It carried 450kg buckets to the Loader at Km108 at a velocity of 9km/hr. It climbed steeply from the mine 110 metres in 750 (360ft in 2,450), a 1 in 6.8 climb, by crossing the Arroyo de Uclías.
