Canada’s SNC-Lavalin Group’s Europe branch, in a consortium with a subsidiary of Jacobs Engineering, has signed an agreement to carry out a $9.4 million feasibility study of the Al-Jalamid Phosphate Project in Saudi Arabia. The study is expected to be completed by early 2005.
The study will be carried out for a consortium made up of Ma'aden-Saudi Arabian Mining Company and Saudi Oger, and will involve the development of the Al-Jalamid phosphate resource area.
In addition to processing facilities, including a mineral processing plant, phosphoric and sulphuric acid plants, a diammonium phosphate (DAP) plant and infrastructure, the study will involve field testing, environmental impact assessment, workforce organization definition, and economic and financial market evaluation.
SNC-Lavalin has offices across Canada and in 30 other countries around the world and are currently working in some 100 countries. The company signed an $8.3 million contract to develop the Saudi Al-Amar gold mine last month. — (menareport.com)
