Australian firm wins Aktogay contract

Posted on October 23, 2011 by Alex

Ausenco Limited, an Australian engineering services provider, has been awarded a $31 million contract for Kazakhmys’ Aktogay copper project, the company said in a statement.  Ausenco’s role “involves the engineering and design of the open-pit mine.”  Last year, Kazakhmys, Kazakhstan’s largest copper miner, formed a joint venture with Chinese Jinchuan Group Ltd to develop the Aktogay copper  deposit in eastern Kazakhstan.  The project is likely to cost $1.5 billion to $2.0 billion to complete and will boost Kazakhmys’ copper concentrate production by 100,000 tonnes per year.
