Lump Sum Design and Documentation


1.4 Mtpa Au



Tabakoto Pebble Crushing Circuit Design – The Tabakoto Gold Mine is located in south-western Mali and production was restarted in 2009. Underground and open pit ore is processed through a 1.4 Mtpa plant and gold is recovered through a standard gravity-CIL process. Between February and May 2014, Mintrex designed a pebble crushing circuit with a nominal throughput of 10 tph (max. 40tph) to enable increased plant throughput against a lump sum quotation.  Sanki conveyors and a Metso HP100 cone crusher were used in the circuit, which was based on a proven, operating pebble crusher design. Construction was completed in September 2014.

Mintrex executed the design and engineering for a fixed price; and completed the structural, mechanical and concrete design (including shop detailing of steel and plate for the crusher building) within the agreed 6 week period.  Support continued for procurement with Mintrex expediting major equipment delivery.
