Nevada Copper Corp. recently announced that it has engaged Redpath USA Corp. to implement the company’s ramp-up strategy for the underground mine at Pumpkin Hollow, Nevada. The company commenced production from surface operations during December and it is entering into a new phase of development supporting its ongoing operations. It has high confidence in Redpath’s ability as a partner during the ramp-up to full commercial production in 2020.
“Nevada Copper made the transition from developer to producer in Q4 2019 and we now have a clear, straightforward strategy for ramping up our Pumpkin Hollow underground project to full commercial production,” said Matt Gili, CEO of Nevada Copper. “Redpath is considered throughout the mining industry as the partner of choice for production ramp up and we are excited to be working with them during this important period of growth.”
Redpath replaced another mining contractor and will be the company’s principal underground mining contractor going forward. Redpath has a great deal of experience, delivering complex projects internationally and in Nevada — ahead of schedule and under budget.
