American Consortium Buys Ausenco from RCF
“We’ve always been about challenging what’s possible and delivering services sustainably and with integrity,” Meka said. “From permitting to closure, our people are finding better ways to plan projects, efficiently use resources, protect the environment, and deliver value to clients and communities. In Eldridge, Brightstar, and Claure Group we have partners that understand this ambition and our culture.”
Under RCF’s ownership, Ausenco has constructed four major copper concentrators. These include Carrapateena, representing one of the largest copper reserves in Australia, Constancia and Mina Justa in Peru, and Mantoverde in Chile, still under construction, for a combined annual copper capacity of more than 400,000 metric tons. In addition to copper, Ausenco has grown capabilities in sustainability, lithium and operational performance. Originally founded in 1991, Ausenco now has more than 3,000 employees.
The transaction is expected to close in late 2023, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
