The US$190mn phase II project involves expanding Gabriela Mistral's ore processing capacity by 16.5Mt/y to 47.5Mt/y, and thus increasing fine copper production from 150,000t/y to 170,000t/y. The project will require 1,500 workers at project peak. Gaby phase II is controlled by Chilean state copper producer Codelco.
