El Tesorero Loader

The loader for The Tesorero mine. Iron ore was transported by a double aerial cable system by Pöhlig and Adolfo Bleichart which was in two sections. The one from the mine at 1,430m (4,690ft) went to a mid-way station at Corbull 1,575m (5,170ft) and the second went on to Km 108, a distance of approximately 17Km.

The cable carried buckets of 450kg travelling at a speed of 2.5m/sec (9Km/hr) totalling 40 tonnes/hour. The cable and loader operated between 1909 and 1915 carrying in total 170,000 tonnes in its lifetime.

Now in very poor condition but it can still be seen how the iron ore trains were loaded and shunted.
