In 2010, the discovery of a small tributary canal in Gallery Menezes, which was interrupted by a semi-siphon with strong winds, indicated a point with a possible continuity of Santana Cave (Cave of Roncador, Krone 1909).
On May 1st 2014, we achieved the transposition of this semi-siphon confirming our suspicion. We discovered, explored and mapped a conduct of 65 meters called Conduit Spark. With the addition of this new conduit, Cave Santana reaches a development of 8540 meters (Horizontal Projection – plant).
