ONTARIO AMEC of Oakville has been awarded the engineering and project management services (EPMS) contract for the US$280-million Pogo gold mine project in Alaska. AMEC recently completed the final feasibility study for the project.
The Pogo project, about 90 miles southeast of Fairbanks, is owned by Vancouver-based TECK COMINCO and SUMITOMO METAL MINING of Japan. Plans call for developing a 2,500-ton/day underground mine and mill which will produce 350,000 to 500,000 oz of gold per year over at least 10 years. Initial production is scheduled for March 2006.
AMEC’s Vancouver-based Mining & Metals Unit has been involved in the Pogo project since 1998. Learn more about one of the premier international EPMS providers at www.amec.com.
