Highland Valley Copper (HVC) is located in British Columbia, Canada. Wholly-owned and operated by Teck, HVC has been in production since 1962 and produces both copper and molybdenum concentrates.

Copper production in 2022 is anticipated to be between 127,000–133,000 tonnes, with an expected increase to 130,000–160,000 tonnes per year from 2023 to 2025.

Teck continues to evaluate the Highland Valley Copper 2040 Project (HVC 2040), which would extend the mine life to at least 2040, through an extension of the existing site infrastructure. HVC 2040 allows for the continuation of social and economic benefits, while also helping to meet the growing demand for copper driven by the transition to a low-carbon future. HVC 2040 would yield approximately 1.95 million tonnes of additional copper over the life of the project. HVC 2040 is currently undergoing an environmental assessment under the BC Environmental Assessment Act. Teck is planning for a decision on the assessment in late 2023.

Recent Activity

January 2023

In 2022, Highland Valley produced 119,100 tonnes of copper. Production was affected by lower copper grades and harder ore as well as a temporary pit closure in Q4 2022 due to a localized geotechnical event that has since been stabilized.
