Project Details

Description

The Antamina open-pit mine expansion project seeks to increase ore processing capacity from 94,000 to 130,000t/d by adding mineral reserves. The program will increase output by 31% to 360,000t/y of copper and 215,000t/y of zinc. Antamina's expansion program involves overall investments of almost US$1.3bn. It is expected to require 2,726 workers during the construction phase, and will then generate 500 long-term jobs during the ensuing operational phase. BHP Billiton owns a 33.75% stake in peruvian miner Antamina, Glencore owns another 33.75% while Canadian Teck Resources has 22.5% and Japan's Mitsubishi owns 10%.
