5,600 TPD - Heap Leach
KCA was awarded the EPCM contract for this expansion project in 2015 and completed the Engineering for the project in 2016.
The project is designed as a 5,600 tonnes per day two-stage crush, rod mill / verti-mill, filtration, mixing and agglomeration plant. The existing Merrill-Crowe plant will be utilized for metal extraction. Further, the agglomerated product will be blended with crushed ore from the existing heap leach circuit and delivered to conveyors stacking ore on the existing heap leach pad.
KCA is currently managing the ongoing Construction and Commissioning efforts of the expansion, which are expected to be complete in 2017.
