Chuquicamata copper minesite

Report summary

After 100 years of continued operation, the key issue facing the Chuquicamata Division is that of replacing depleting open pit reserves. The Chuquicamata 140kt/d ore underground project, will be key to extending existing mill operations at this division. The underground project was expected, according to the 2018 plan, to start delivering ore in April  2019 (caving by 2020) and reach full capacity by 2024-2025. The accompanying analysis considers production of copper in concentrate at the nominal 175kt/d Chuquicamata mill (MINCO) and production from the oxide line.
