Jacobs Engineering Group has been chosen by Teck Resources and Aurubis AG to perform the prefeasibility study (PFS) for a proposed copper cathode production facility in Peru. Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs will provide capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) estimates to Teck and Aurubis for determining project prefeasibility. Teck and Aurubis’ conceptual copper cathode production facility would incorporate their proprietary CESL copper-arsenic process technology — providing high copper and precious metal recoveries, controlled arsenic deportment, and reduced environmental impact compared to traditional pyrometallurgical smelter processing facilities in respect to air, dust and water.
