Quebrada Blanca Data

Quebrada Blanca Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    The mine is located at an elevation of 4,400 metres. Mine personnel live in a camp facility and the majority commute from large population centres, including Iquique and Santiago. Teck own 76.5% of Quebrada Blanca. Our partners are Inversiones Mineras S.A. 13.5% and Empresa Nacional de Minera 10%. The operation mines ore from an open pit and leaches the ore to produce copper cathodes via a SX-EW process. Copper cathode is trucked to Iquique for shipment to purchasers. To keep the mine operational until 2020, Teck also plans to improve mining roads, modify the mineral refining plant's pipelines, upgrade power lines, build a tire deposit and, finally, create a water management plan. The project involves an investment of US$165mn and works should begin in the second half of 2015.
