The Bozymchak mine is planned to supply copper concentrate to Kazakhmys Group smelters in neighboring Kazakhstan, with gold contained as a significant by-product.
Kazakhmys engaged WorleyParsons to prepare the early feasibility studies to permit fast-track design, construction and commissioning of the mine and processing plant. The objective is to optimize the design of the mine and location of the process plant and associated infrastructure within the limited lease area, situated in mountainous terrain. The feasibility study will also provide details beyond that required for local approvals to satisfy the lending criteria of international banks.
Kazakhmys and WorleyParsons have adopted an integrated team approach to develop a strong relationship built on trust, respect and transparency to expedite the study and design processes. Our Select team employed risk management techniques early in the project to rapidly identify, understand and manage design, safety, cost and schedule risks. The resultant risk management plan will be updated throughout the study.
