Cobre Panama Data

Cobre Panama Information

  • Processing 2015-07-23
    The processing plant will have an installed capacity of 70Mtpa for the first 10 years. It iswill be further expected to expanded up to 100Mtpa beyondafter the initial 10 years.Ore will be separated from the minerals following a crushing and grinding process. Using froth flotation, the majority of the copper and molybdenum minerals will be separated from uneconomical minerals. The two will be separated from each other through differential flotations. The design of the process plant will allow 15% daily fluctuations in throughput. In the tenth year, the rate of ore throughput from the concentrator will be increased by 50% to 225,000t/d, providing sufficient concentrate production during periods of falling head grade. To meet the increased rate of ore treatment, the capacity of the crusher, grinder, bulk rougher flotation, water and air systems will also be increased by 50%.
  • Mining 2015-07-23
    Mining at Cobre Panama will involve conventional open pit methods. Ore processing will be carried out in a concentrator designed to treat ore at a head grade of 0.70% Cu and 0.013% Mo. The concentrator will initially process 150,000t/d ore from Botija, while ore from the Colina and Valle Grande pits will be processed later.
  • Geology 2015-07-23
    The mine is hosted at the southern end of a massive mid-Oligocene aged granodioritic batholith. Botija, Colina and Valle Grande are the main deposits, with several smaller deposits also hosted, including Brazo and Botija Abajo. The deposits measure nine kilometres in length and 4.5km in width and occur within a west north-west, east south-east oriented zone. Porphyry style mineralisation occurs in granodiorite, feldspar-quartz hornblende and adjacent lying andesitic volcanics.
  • General 2015-05-10
    The project was acquired through the takeover of Inmet Mining by First Quantum Minerals in 2013. Access to the project area is via the Pan-American Highway system from Panama City to Penonome, surfaced all-weather roads to Llano Grande, and gravel roads via the town of Coclecito. The topography in the concession area is low elevation (less than 300 metres) but rugged with considerable local relief covered by dense rainforest. Climatic conditions are tropical with high precipitation levels, high humidity and relatively high temperatures of 25ºC to 30ºC year-round.
