BHP, which owns 57.5 percent of the mine, is investing $1.97 billion, and Rio Tinto, which owns 30 percent, will contribute $1.03 billion. Work that includes two pipelines, four high-pressure pumps and a reservoir at the mine site is scheduled to begin this month and will be finished in 2017, according to a statement today from BHP.
