NuevaUnión is a copper-gold-molybdenum project that combines Goldcorp’s El Morro project and Teck Resources Ltd.’s Relincho project into a 50/50 joint venture. The projects are 40 kilometres apart in the Huasco Province of the Atacama region in Chile.

NuevaUnión is working on various development scenarios and a pre-feasibility study. Combining the two projects into a single development project is an innovative approach that has several benefits:

  • it reduces the cost of building new infrastructure
  • it reduces the environmental footprint
  • it streamlines the engagement with the local community.

Key development milestones

Strategic trade-off studies on the opportunities created by the combination – completed

Pre-feasibility study – expected completion in the second half of 2017

Environmental impact assessment – expected completion in the second half of 2018
