Casposo Project | Feasibility Study Review and Detailed Engineering
This project included Due Diligence and a review of the Feasibility Study. It included metallurgical services and test work, sourcing suitable second hand equipment, transportation, and re-assembly, planning and design for construction of new equipment required for the Merrill Crowe process and preparation and planning for the construction of a power grid on site. METS’ key initiatives also included the cyanide destruction circuit and dry tailings disposal facilities.
METS managed a detailed test work campaign using all the available samples. The test work interpretation was submitted to Troy Resources. Careful analysis of the capabilities of the existing equipment was performed. New equipment was designed and purchased to fulfil the requirements of the redesigned process. Suitable second hand equipment was used from the Burdekin project and purchased in North America.
Construction and reassembly of the equipment was carried out by a local contractor. METS’ supervision was required for installation of reagent and additives equipment. A local subcontractor performed the installation of the required electrical equipment and cabling with supervision from Australia. During the second stage of construction, we provided a supervising electrical engineer to manage the final installation of the electrical system, carry out process control programming and commissioning of these systems.
