The Antapaccay deposit is located 9 kilometres from Xstrata Copper’s Tintaya mine in southern Peru. The deposit consists of two adjacent mineral structures: Antapaccay North and Antapaccay South.
A favourable feasibility study into the development of the Antapaccay project as a brownfield expansion to Tintaya was completed in October 2009. The feasibility study identified an estimated investment of US$1.4 billion to construct an operation that will produce an average of 160,000 tonnes of copper per annum over at least 20 years commencing in mid-2012.
Xstrata Copper is the fourth largest global copper producer with attributable mined production in 2009 of 907,000 tonnes of copper in cathodes and concentrates.
The company is also one of the world’s largest producers of smelter and refined copper, including from third party materials.
