  • Skouries Copper Gold Project

    Skouries Copper Gold Project
    Eldorado Gold (EGL), through Hellas Gold, is developing the Skouries copper-gold porphyry deposit located in the Chalkidiki Peninsula of Greece. The mine is to develop in two phases the first phase consists of a small open pit and the second phase is an underground operation. The project deliverable is a copper-god deposit. It is unique as it was never done before. It is temporary as it would not be constructed again and it has a fixed start and end date.
