Freeport-McMoRan Tyrone operations is moving forward with exploration, design and preparation of permit applications for open pit and stockpile expansions south of its existing operations. Known as the Emma Project, the new pit would encompass approximately 130 acres on private property south of the Tyrone/Thompson road. Emma is expected to be in operation for three to five years. The operations will run 24-7, with mine vehicle equipment hauling rock from Emma back to existing operations.
