Work at the Guiro mine
The Consep Acacia CS250 Intensive Leach Reactor (ILR) which will process concentrates with high efficiency has been manufactured faster than expected and will be shipped overseas and via ground transportation in November and December 2016. During this period, civil works are going to be done in order to be ready for installation when the reactor and other equipment will arrive. The third Knelson concentrator is in transit and expected to be delivered to the project site by the end of November 2016.
A third-party firm with metallurgical expertise is currently working on validating the final process that will include 3 concentrators, 2 ball mills and the reactor. Commissioning is still planned for Q1 2017 and could be accelerated in the early weeks of January if all deliveries are on schedule. The installation is planned to minimize disruption to the current plant operations and minimize the possibilities of production delay with the new equipment.
