:: Chelopech, Bulgaria's Copper and Gold Operations Reviewed
Dundee Precious Metals acquired the Chelopech underground mine in Bulgaria in 2003, and are currently upgrading the operations, the Definitive Feasibility Study being completed in 2005 by GRD Minproc.
After commissioning, the integrated Chelopech operations are expected to produce a nominal 22,000 t of copper metal and up to 137,000 oz of gold bullion per annum from mining and processing 2 Mt of ore, by flotation, pressure oxidation and SX/EW for copper, and cyanidation of the residue for gold.
The operations are described in detail by John Chadwick in the October 2006 issue of International Mining (pps. 6-19).
