Tetra Tech Proteus was selected to undertake the engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) for the residue disposal plant associated with the 35-Mtpa Boddington Gold Mine operation.

The mine operates under strict environmental guidelines. Residue from the operation must be treated to ensure that the amount of residual cyanide in the tailings meets the required guidelines.

  • Project management
  • Concept development
  • Design of mechanical, piping, concrete, structural steel, electrical, instrumentation, and control systems
  • Procurement and contracts (bidding, adjudication, award recommendation)
  • Project cost control, scheduling and reporting
