Quebrada Blanca Phase 2

Quebrada Blanca Phase 2 is a copper project located in northern Chile.

About Quebrada Blanca Phase 2

Quebrada Blanca Phase 2 is a development project that aims to develop the hypogene resource at Quebrada Blanca, to substantially increase annual copper production and extend the mine’s production life by more than 25 years.

The project is expected to include the construction of a new concentrating plant, a tailings facility and major infrastructure installations for transporting concentrate and sea water, and facilities to receive, filter and ship concentrate in the North Patache sector south of Iquique. Desalinated sea water – which will be taken from the coast and pumped through a pipeline to the mine – will be the main source of water for the Quebrada Blanca Phase 2 project.

Quebrada Blanca Phase 2 is expected to have annual production of 275,000 tonnes of copper and over 7,700 tonnes of molybdenum in concentrate for the first full five years of mine life.

We submitted the Social and Environmental Impact Assessment (SEIA) for the project to the authorities in September of 2016.
