MACA Interquip was recently awarded a $39.7 million EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) contract for the refurbishment of the Three Mile Hill processing plant the Coolgardie gold project.
Focus Minerals paused production in 2013 in response to lower gold prices to concentrate on the exploration of the wider Coolgardie area.
With operations now resuming, MACA Interquip is scheduled to reach commissioning by mid-2023.
General Manager Ben Thomas said the MACA Interquip team have begun site works with the construction team ramping up throughout November.
“The TMH plant will be refurbished to safely operate at its original nameplate of 120tpa.”
“We look forward to delivering value for our client, Focus Minerals,” said Ben.
Well done to all involved.
