The PFS is targeting an underground operation focussed on the high-grade core of the deposit, using a combination of flotation and Solvent Extraction and Electro Winning
(SXEW) processing technology.
Nickel and copper are then separated, purified and recovered as metallic cathode via standard solvent extraction, electro winning
Infrastructure construction on the site includes heap leaching pads, back up ponds, solvent extraction, electro winning
plants and offices.
We have also uncovered a proven electro winning
process that will recover more gold and dramatically more silver than conventional methods at an operating cost of about ten cents an ounce.
The mine plan as outlined in the company's pre-feasibility study details a 400 million tons open pit resource and a production plan of 14 million tons of ore per annum utilizing a recovery circuit comprising flotation, roasting and electro winning
JABA proposes to install an in situ leach mine with solvent extraction - electro winning
(SXEW) to produce electrolytic (wire grade) copper.
