SNC Lavalin awarded contract
SNC Lavalin has been awarded a contract to upgrade processing equipment at a copper mine in Chile. The Montreal-based engineering and construction giant says it will provide overall project management as well as detailed engineering, procurement and construction management services at Codelco's Chuquicamata mine.
