Kamoa-Kakula to begin copper production within a month

Since 2017, DRA has been the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management contractor for Kamoa-Kakula’s Phase 1 construction.

Approximately 7,000 employees and contractors helped to build the 3.8-Mtpa concentrator plant ahead of schedule and within budget.

“An exciting fact is that we have been able to significantly bring forward the Phase 1 concentrator commissioning. We now expect to produce our first copper concentrate by the end of May or early June, months ahead of the original schedule”. said Mark Farren, Kamoa Copper’s CEO.
