Bhp Approves 2 Billion Escondida Water Project Mining
jul 25, 2013 the more than $3.4 billion project will ensure continued water supply to escondida, as water use increases upon completion of the 152,000 tonne per day OG copper concentratorjul 26, 2013 the project will provide a sustainable supply of water for the new 152,000 td OG copper concentrator approved in february 2012, while minimising escondidas reliance on the regions aquifers. construction will commence in july 2013 with commissioning scheduled in 2017.sep 08, 2008 chiles escondida, the worlds largest copper mine, could start building a new $3.5 billion plant to desalinate sea water by late 2009 if it gets regulatory and board approval, a dec 16, 2020 sgo was developed and designed from the start with this imperative, drawing on the experience of minera escondida, which constructed its organic growth project comprising a new concentrator plant, and its escondida water supply project, involving a 2,500 litre per second desalination plant to cover increased processing.
