TORONTO (ICIS)--Canada’s mining and metals firm Teck Metals plans to build a sulphuric acid plant at a zinc and lead smelter site in the country’s western British Columbia province, an engineering firm said on Tuesday.

US petrochemicals engineering firm Jacobs, which won a contract to design the plant and supply its equipment, said the unit would replace two older sulphuric acid plants at Teck's Trail operations in the province.

Jacobs said its contract for the project was valued at about $50m (€38m).

It did not disclose the plant's capacity or expected start-up date.
