Jacobs Engineering Group has won a services contract for the next stage of the $5.3bn Oyu Tolgoi underground copper and gold mine in Mongolia.

The firm will be responsible for the provision of engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services to implement the materials handling systems for the new underground mine and associated surface and underground infrastructure.

The project, located in the south Gobi region of Mongolia, about 550km south of the capital Ulaanbaatar, is being delivered over a five- to seven-year period, with the first draw bell production from the underground mine expected in 2020.

Jacobs’ president and CEO Steve Demetriou said: “We are very proud to be associated with what is a landmark project for Oyu Tolgoi, Mongolia and the global mining landscape.

“The Oyu Tolgoi Underground Project is one of the largest mining projects worldwide. We are excited at the opportunity to contribute significant value to our client and the nation of Mongolia.”
