The Lundin Eagle Mine is an underground, high-grade nickel and copper mine located in the Upper Peninsula in the state of Michigan. Fluor provided engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for the mine, mill process plant and all associated facilities. The facilities at the mine site include aggregate storage, course ore storage, portal fans and heaters, and truck shop. The mill site areas include crushing, conveying, dust collection, grinding, classification, floatation and regrind, concentrate thickening and dewatering, as well as tailings disposal.
The mill property was a former iron ore processing facility built in the 1950s and included the revamp of several structures and the construction of new facilities. The mill produces a nickel and copper concentrate that will be transported via rail car directly to smelter facilities within North America or to ports for shipment overseas.
