Copperwood Project

Americas, United States
Copperwood boasts the highest grade of all known sediment-hosted copper deposits in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, USA.

Copperwood is an underground room and pillar, located about 800 feet below the surface and would extend mining to within 200 feet of Lake Superior (although the deposit itself dips beneath Lake Superior).

Lycopodium was engaged as part of a team of consultants to produce a Feasibility Study (FS) in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

The scope of work encompassed process and engineering documentation, including the provision of flow sheet, mass balance, recovery methods, mineral process plant design and input into operating and capital cost estimates for the process plant.

Lycopodium engineered the process plant, including provision of:

  • Memorandum for the implementation of flash flotation.
  • Power consumption estimates.
  • Estimated quantities for earthworks, concrete, structure, piping, electrical, instrumentation and architecture material take-offs.
