Abstract

This research describes the Feasibility study of Aynak copper deposit with special consideration on Infrastructure, logistics, processing and auxiliary operations. Due to that, mining project are mostly located in remote area, where, there is lack of infrastructure, water and power availability. The investigation is carried out based on technical and economical comparison through assessing the infrastructure required for the project. Moreover, the technical planning for auxiliary facilities including fuel and explosive storages, accommodations, offices, workshops and maintenance facilities required for the project is considered based on technical and economical comparison to propose the most feasible option. In addition, considering that Aynak copper deposit contains both sulfide and oxide ore, the study on mineral processing is conducted through reliable geological information to achieve the most feasible options for ore recovery. The result of study is estimated based on technical factors and cost analysis.
