"The delegates from IMIDRO were in the country to attend the annual International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Melbourne. ATC Williams in partnership with the French Australia chamber of commerce (FACCI) held a meet and greet during their stay. The event was attended by ATC Williams and FACCI staff members along with the delegation and other mining industry representatives. TC Williams has a long history of working on Projects in Iran and we commenced business 18 years ago with NICICO (National Iranian Copper Industry Co). ATC Williams has since provided innovative tailings management solutions to mine operations and projects that have a water shortage."

"We’re delighted to announce the agreement between ATC Williams and the Iranian Babak Copper Company (IBCCo) that was recently signed. IBCCo is the subsidiary of the private Middle East Mineral Industries and Mines Development Holding Company (MIDHCO) . This agreement is related to the development of a filtered tailings deposition for a new bio leach copper extraction operation located in Kerman province, Iran. ATC Williams can now build on its extensive water and tailings management experience developed over our 15 year history working within the Middle East." (Company Website, 5/31/2016)
"The sanctions on Iran are progressively being lifted which has major positive implications for how the rest of the world can work with this country. ATC Williams has been working in Iran for over 15 years under a licence from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. We have been assisting the National Iranian Copper Industry (NICICO), the largest Iranian Copper Producer with design services associated with management of water and tailings for these projects using innovative methods such as down valley thickened tailings. Our presence is still active and engineers from our Melbourne office are regularly in Iran to review works that have been completed." (Company Website, 2/5/2016)
