Fairport Engineering selected to deliver detailed engineering works for the Barruecopardo Tungsten Mining Project

Following on from the successful completion of the Basic Engineering design works project owner Saloro SLU has appointed Fairport Engineering Ltd to deliver the Detailed Engineering works for a Tungsten mining operation in the Salamanca Province of Spain. Part of a $99.7M investment programme the Barruecopardo Tungsten Project has a commissioning target date of end 2016. The mine will process over 1 million tonnes of ore per annum and make a strategic difference to the global supply of primary tungsten. Initial steps in the implementation of these works are the placement of orders for priority equipment and advancing final (construction) design works for process plant, infrastructure and for the water management system.

Paul Fitton Fairport Engineering’s Managing Director Commented “Mining and Mineral process engineering is a core sector for Fairport Engineering. We have now secured a major programme of work based on our ability to demonstrate the value of applying our mineral process engineering expertise. We are looking forward to successfully delivering the Detailed Engineering works that will enable Saloro to play an important role in helping Spain become a strategic player in the world market for mined Tungsten.”
