Fluor provided full engineering, procurement, and construction management services on the project, the first major mining project in the region since an expansion of Olympic Dam in the late 1990s, which also involved Fluor. The project involved development of an open-pit mine, copper / gold ore processing facilities, and mine infrastructure. Fluor's scope included crushing and grinding facilities, a flotation processing plant (concentrator) with 8 million metric tons per annum capacity of copper and gold, construction of a permanent village to accommodate a 500-person workforce, and construction of haul roads, power lines, an airfield, and a bore field.
Onsite, Fluor's construction management organization averaged 400 workers, with up to 1,000 construction workers at peak periods. Nearly 80 percent of the project workforce (including engineers and construction workers) were locally hired, and approximately half of project expenditures were realized by the South Australia economy.
