List of Minerals Processing Projects in SA


CAIRN HILL MAGNETITE COPPER GOLD PROJECT
Resource - Copper/Gold/Magnetite project at Stuart Highway 55 Km South East of, Coober Pedy, SA 5723 in the Mining - Primary And Secondary Processing (Minerals Processing). Resource of 10.5million tonnes indicated & 4.2million tonnes inferred of ore @ 51.9% Fe, 0.4% Cu, 0.12g/t Au. Phase 1 of the mine operations to consist of 2 open pits located to extract the northern and southern mineralisations. The project will initially involve a trial mining operation to remove and crush 20 000 tonnes of ore in order to refine engineering parameters. The main mining operation will then involve mining of an estimated 7.3 million tonnes of reserves in the western portion of the ML area, using open pit techniques. The project will involve on-site crushing with direct export of ore for processing. The ore will be transported in bulk by road to a proposed new rail siding (the Mast) and then by rail to Darwin for export by ship. Facilities at the site will include a mobile crushing plant, two waste rock dumps, diesel power plant and reverse osmosis plant. Associated infrastructure will include a water supply borefield and a site access/haulage road to the proposed rail siding. Phase 2 will target low copper & sulphur magnetite deposits immediately to the east of Phase 1 activity. Phase 3 involves expansion further east again. Detailed aeromagnetic surveys have identified targets for drilling to identify these easterly deposits. It is hoped these will come into operation when additional port capacity becomes available at Port Bonython or Darwin, leading to operations expanding up to 5Mtpa. Click for more details...
