SUPERIOR, Ariz. (April 2, 2014) – Resolution Copper Mining (RCM) of Superior, Ariz., has awarded Sundt Construction, Inc. of Tempe, Ariz., the contract to install an upgrade to its surface refrigeration in support of mine shaft development in Superior.

  The project will employ 90 people during construction with an emphasis on local hiring.

  The US$4 million project will increase the cooling capacity of the air conditioning system for the sinking of the No. 10 Shaft at the Resolution Copper east plant. Resolution anticipates hitting shaft bottom at 7,000 feet later this year.

  The award will allow the commencement of shaft sinking by Resolution Copper, which was suspended last year.

  “The health and safety of our workers is a top priority at Resolution, and this project will greatly improve working conditions in the shaft,” said Andrew Taplin, RCM Project Director, “RCM has a goal of zero harm for all employees and contractors.”

  Sundt shares the safe approach with its innovative “Safety by Choice” program. Sundt puts an emphasis on hiring local community members.  “Sundt currently employs several local community members on our mining projects throughout Arizona,” said Dave Crowford of Sundt,  “we value the skill sets and talents members of the copper triangle community bring to our employee owned company.”

  The project is located in the area of the former Magma Copper Mine near the town of Superior, 65 miles east of Phoenix.
