First Quantum to resume full production at Cobre Panama copper project
First Quantum Minerals is to resume production at its Cobre Panama copper project after Panama's government lifted its Covid-19 suspension of operations at the site.
The Panama copper project is expected to reach full capacity by mid-August, the Toronto, Canada-listed company said.
A phased increase in personnel is expected to take output to an annualized throughput rate of 85 million tonnes of ore, it added. The company did not specify how many additional workers would be brought on site.
