Alacer Gold’s board of directors has approved construction of the Çöpler sulphide project at its 80% owned Çöpler gold mine in the Erzincan province, eastern Turkey. The Çöpler mine has been processing oxide ore via an open-pit, heap-leach process since late 2010. A definitive feasibility study of sulphide ore processing via whole ore pressure oxidation was completed in June 2014.
