The project has long been of interest due to its massive combined five billion pound copper reserve, but has been in the development doghouse for the past two years because of the high development costs. The pre-feasibility study last week projected building a more economically viable high-grade underground mine as a way to jumpstart the project, with first production expected in 2019.
