BRITISH COLUMBIA – Terrane Metals of Vancouver has selected AMEC Americas and Fluor Canada to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) for its Mt. Milligan copper-gold project 150 km northwest of Prince George. The engineering companies will create a joint venture (BCMJV) to carry out the work.

Key components of the project include a 60,000-t/d copper flotation plant, tailings storage facility, plant ancillary facilities, 92-km power transmission line and a 600-person construction camp. The first phase of a 30-month construction program is now underway. Subject to final documentation, BCMJV personnel will be on-site by the end of June.
