Energy-efficient ball mills are at the heart of the Morenci mill expansion. The Decision to Restore Milling Operations To date, Freeport has invested more than $1.6 billion to expand production at Morenci to more than 1 billion lb per year (lb/y) of copper, propelling it to world-class status among copper mines.
The Morenci operation consists of two concentrators capable of milling 132,000 metric tons of ore per day, which produce copper and molybdenum concentrate; a 68,000 metric ton-per-day, crushed-ore leach pad and stacking system; a low-grade run-of-mine (ROM) leaching system; four SX plants; and three EW tank houses that produce copper cathode.
Sure Steel was hired by Jacobs Engineering in a design-assist role to help with the design and procurement of the Metcalf 55K Expansion. The Sure Steel team and engineers spent 11 months in Tucson working directly with Jacobs to design and supply the building steel for three components of the project: the Ball Mill Building, the Hydraulic Roll Crusher (HRC) Building, and the Moly Building.
