The US$3.1bn project will involve developing and mining a new mine level at El Teniente, with the aim of maintaining processing levels (131,000t/d) and ensure continued operations at the mine until 2064. The project will require 2,400 workers during the construction phase.
The new mine level project aims to exploit an area of ore 300m below the current mine area, extending the productive life of the deposit for at least 50 years. The first blast on the access tunnels comes after two years of civil works on a US$68mn interconnectivity platform at the mine and a bridge over the Coya river to prepare for tunnel construction.
