A mining company named CuMo, formally named Mosquito, is planning to open an estimated 3,850 acre, open-pit. mine in Boise County, Idaho. CuMo plans to extract copper, molybdenum, silver, and gold. Under the Bus Engineering was tasked with creating a feasibility study report for mining operations. Our goal is to determine the mine’s feasibility for CuMo and the surrounding area. We have considered mining operations and developed estimates for each phase of the mine. We have designed a complete mine site layout and mine-tailings dam. All designs closely followed regulations from several state and federal agencies, including: Idaho Department of Lands, Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, and Environmental Protection Agency. A cost analysis was performed, along with a reclamation plan.
