Abstract

Los proyectos mineros debido a su potencial riesgo de contaminación, en concreto a lo que se refiere a los recursos hídricos, deben ser sometidos a un estricto control medioambiental. En esta investigación realizamos el estudio del metabolismo hídrico (MH) de la actividad minera Las Cruces que conlleva un análisis de los flujos de agua de la actividad en su contexto territorial, ambiental, social, institucional y tecnológico. Mediante el diseño de un marco de análisis para el estudio de los flujos hídricos desde una perspectiva más allá de la puramente contable, contribuimos al debate sobre el análisis de los flujos de agua en los procesos de producción-consumo. El MH explica por qué son esos flujos, y no otros, los que entran en el proceso minero, mostrando de esta forma la necesidad de contextualización en los análisis metabólicos.
