The groundbreaking ceremony for Jiangxi Province’s largest lead-zinc mine took place late last month, according to the EPC contractor for the project.
China Nerin Engineering said the event – celebrating construction starting on Jiangxi Copper’s lead-zinc-silver project in the Yinzhushan mining area – took place on June 28 and was attended by various guests from the contractor, mining company and government.
China Nerin said in a news release (translated into English) that it would actively introduce foreign advanced engineering project management concepts, and actively apply BIM technology in the whole process to make the Yinzhushan lead-zinc-silver project the first 3D collaborative construction in China.
Jiangxi Copper’s investment in Yinzhushan, which is set to have a production capacity of 1 Mt/y, is part of the company’s three-year innovation and development plan, China Nerin said. It also plays a part in the provincial government’s plan to enlarge and strengthen the lead and zinc industry.
