Fluor Corporation announced that it was given full notice to proceed by Gold Fields for its Salares Norte open pit gold mine in Chile. Fluor is providing engineering, procurement and construction management services for the project located in the Atacama region of northern Chile about 14,000 feet above sea level. Fluor’s scope of work includes the engineering, procurement of permanent plant material, tendering, award and post-award services for major construction and primary services contracts, as well as construction management and pre-commissioning support.

Construction is scheduled to begin later this year and be completed in early 2023. When fully operational, the mine will produce an estimated average of 400,000 ounces of gold per year over the 11 1/2 year life expectancy of the mine.

Fluor has worked with Gold Fields since 2016 when it completed the pre-feasibility study for the project.
