Mining major BHP has spent some A$250-million over the last four years to expand underground operations at its Olympic Dam copper project, in South Australia.

The miner previously abandoned plans to expand its openpit operations at Olympic Dam, opting rather for an underground development pathway that could see copper production increase to 450 000 t/y from 2025.
