Fluor bags Teck’s copper mill optimization project in Canada

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation has been awarded a contract from Teck to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services for the Highland Valley Copper Mill Optimization project in British Columbia, Canada. The optimization project is expected to increase copper recovery by 2 per cent and increase mill output by 10 per cent.

Fluor’s scope of work includes a new pebble crushing facility and a new flotation building with 300 cubic metre tank cells. Fluor will also upgrade the existing grinding circuit, tailings and water supply system. Fluor recently completed the pre-feasibility study for the modernization project. The project work will be managed by Fluor’s office in Vancouver.

“Building on the success of our early study work for Teck, Fluor is pleased to continue with the next phase of the Mill Optimization project. As part of the new life of mine plan, these new facilities and upgrades of existing infrastructure will help extend the life of Highland Valley Copper through 2026,” said Rick Koumouris, Head Mining & Metals business, Fluor.
