AMEC wins Krumovgrad gold mine project in Bulgaria

AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been awarded a contract by Balkan Minerals and Mining EAD (BMM), a subsidiary of Dundee Precious Metals Inc., to provide engineering and procurement services for the Krumovgrad Gold Project in Bulgaria. BMM plans to establish an open pit mine to extract and treat the ore, including an integrated high density tailings system and mine waste facility. The mine is expected to produce gold and silver concentrate containing approximately 74 000 ounces of gold annually over approximately nine years.


BMM has been involved in exploration activities in Krumovgrad/Bulgaria since 2000. The project, designed by BMM to become a showcase for environmental responsibility, community relations and mine management, is located in the Kardjali District of Bulgaria, about 15 km north of the Greek border. AMEC will undertake engineering of the process plant along with associated services. These include provision of all design documentation in accordance with European Union and Bulgarian regulations, and procurement, expediting and inspection services. The work will be executed from AMEC’s Perth and Sofia locations.
