At its peak in late 1998, the project is expected to employ about 1,800, including 500 at Fluor Daniel Pty.

Total cost of the mine construction project is estimated to be $680 million.

Murrin Murrin Operations is agent for a joint venture of subsidiaries of Anaconda Nickel Limited and Glencore International AG.

Fluor Daniel is the chief operating unit of Irvine-based Fluor Corp.
