Batu Hijau is an open-pit copper-gold mine located on the island of Sumbawa in the province of West Nusa Tenggara, about 1,500 kilometres east of Jakarta.
It is the second largest copper and gold mine in Indonesia and has produced more than 8 billion pounds of copper and over 8½ million troy ounces of gold since production commenced in 2000.
In May 2020, Lycopodium was awarded the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) for the development of additional mineral processing capacity to more than double existing production, including primary crushing station, overland conveyor, coarse ore stockpile and reclaim, milling with pebble crushing, flotation circuits and concentrate and tailings pipelines.
In July 2021, Lycopodium was subsequently awarded the Professional Engineering and Management Services (PMS) scope to facilitate the process plant expansion.
The current scope is for detailed Engineering and Construction Management services for the development of several key process plant areas, commencing January 2022 for two years.
