Vancouver’s Copper Mountain Mining made the first shipment of copper concentrate from its new mine near Princeton to the port of Vancouver. The concentrate is transported in 50-tonne super B train truck units. Port facilities are complete, including a truck discharging and storage area.
Copper Mountain (the company) build a new 35,000-t/d milling facility and “super pit” at the site that will have an annual output of 108 million lb of copper plus 27,000 oz of gold and 330,000 oz of silver. The life of the project based on current reserves is 17 years.
