DRA Global (“DRA”) has been awarded the Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) contract for the Managem Group (Managem), Tizert Copper Project, located in the Souss-Massa province of Morocco.
The Tizert copper deposit is located on the northern edge of Igherm Precambrian buttonhole and is the largest copper deposit in the western Anti-Atlas Copper belt. This underground mine, with a targeted production of 3.3Mt of ore per year, is using multiple mining methods including Room and Pillar and Long Hole Stopping. An Aerial Ropeway System will be used to convey the ore from the Mine Site to the Process Plant site across an 800m wide and 250m deep canyon. The process plant will be a flotation concentrator producing oxide and sulfide copper concentrates.
The DRA’s Montreal office has been awarded the full BFS scope which will include mining, backfill, ore transport, process plant and infrastructures. The BFS is expected to be completed in Q2, 2020.
Pierre Julien, DRA’s Executive Vice President Americas attributes the winning of the contact to an excellent working relationship with Managem “The DRA team has been working closely with the Managem leadership team for almost 2 years, and through a dedicated and collaborative approach has built a partnership which culminated with the award of this BFS contract”.
