Sedgman Managing Director Grant Fraser said: “We are pleased to be able to provide Nevada Copper with the certainty of an EPC solution for the concentrator and surface facilities at Pumpkin Hollow.
“By providing technical expertise during the feasibility, value engineering and front end engineering design phase of the project, we have been able to develop fit for purpose capital works that meet Nevada Copper’s expectations.”
The project comprises design, civil, structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and commissioning works for the 5,000 tonnes per day concentrator. The site is located 80km from Reno in Lyon County, Nevada, USA.
