Jacobs is Selected for Prefeasibility Study in Peru
Teck Resources and Aurubis AG contracted Jacobs Engineering Group to perform the prefeasibility study for a proposed copper cathode production facility in Peru. Jacobs will provide capital expenditure and operational expenditure estimates to Teck and Aurubis for determining project prefeasibility. Teck and Aurubis’ conceptual copper cathode production facility will 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. Jacobs currently supports copper processing facility projects in Asia, North America and South America.
