Procurement Engineering Specialist
In December 2022, Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (Harmony) acquired 100% of Eva Copper Mine Pty Ltd (the Eva Copper Mine Project or 'Eva Copper').
Located 75 kilometres from the town of Cloncurry and 95 kilometres north-east of Mt Isa in the North West region of Queensland, Eva Copper is envisioned to be an open pit mine with a conventional crush, two-stage grind and flotation circuit for the production of copper and gold concentrates from seven open-pit deposits.
Harmony is currently undertaking a review of the existing feasibility study and detailed design completed to date. This review and optimisation process, which is being managed by the company's regional office in Brisbane, is expected to take up to 12 months.
As part of this review and optimisation process, Harmony will determine the most effective way of executing the Project to bring the mine into production. Once a financial investment decision (FID) on the project is achieved, construction of the mine and processing facility is expected to take approximately 24 to 36 months. In addition to the mining infrastructure, project construction will include an access road, on-site accommodation village, administration buildings, maintenance, training and first-aid facilities.
Eva Copper will deliver diverse and complex engineering and construction work packages.
