Tech/Engineering - Mining & Minerals / Gems
Spanish term or phrase: marina
El contratista principal, con el apoyo del consultor de minería, deberá cubicar las ***marinas*** que se generarán a lo largo del tiempo, diferenciando entre aquellas que ***tienen ley*** y deberían ser enviadas a la planta concentradora, de aquellas que son estéril y deberían ser enviadas a botaderos.

El documento se compone de las bases técnicas para la implementación de una mina subterránea en Chile.
En el KOG encontré un término, "mucking", para "marinas" pero no estoy segura de que se trate de lo mismo.
Muchas gracias por la ayuda prestada!

measure the capacity of the "fleet"

I think "fleet" is right in this context. (Oxford Spanish Dictionary - marina = fleet or navy.

Hope this helps

neutral  Leon Hunter: From the context, it looks like it's about a type of precious stone, although I don't know the name of this particular mineral in English, although I had thought of "aquamarina".
