Project Details


HudBay Mineral's Constancia project consists of two copper, silver and molybdenum open pit operations, Constancia and San José. According to projections, the pits could be connected 10 years after initial operations. Total ore reserves currently stand at 277.4Mt (measured and indicated). The project will require 580 qualified and 1,220 unqualified workers during the 35-month construction phase, and then generate some 600 operations jobs and 200 administrative jobs during the ensuing operational phase.
