Jacobs bags Aura’s copper mine expansion contract in Mexico

PASADENA, US: Jacobs Engineering Group Inc was awarded a contract by Aura Minerals Inc to provide a basic engineering package for the expansion of the process plant at its Aranzazu copper-gold-silver mine located in the state of Zacatecas, Mexico. Contract value was not disclosed. The services are being provided from Jacobs’ offices in Mexico City, Mexico and Toronto, Canada.

Jacobs is providing engineering services for the installation of a new fine ore stockpile withdrawal system, an additional primary ball mill, two tank flotation cells and a tailings thickener.

We look forward to supporting their project goals by drawing upon our wide-ranging experience in base and precious metal expansion projects,” said Andy Kremer, Vice President, Jacobs Group.
