Ausmex Mining Group (ASX: AMG) has retained Como Engineers to advise the company on our gold processing options in and around Cloncurry district in Queensland.
Como are expert consultants, designers, managers and constructors of Gold Processing Plants and were the designer and constructor of the CIP Processing Plant at the Great Australia Mine for Round Oak Minerals.
The scope of work for this task involves an evaluation of the Round Oak ore handling, crushing and processing plant at Cloncurry, and an evaluation of the operation of the ore handling and CIP Plant at other Cloncurry ore processing facilities based on the particulars of AMG’s ore types, (Golden Mile ore is to be processed at the Great Australia Mine).
Director and COO, Geoff Kidd, said the results of the work by Como will form a vital section of AMG’s internal Scoping Study for the development of Mt Freda and Golden Mile mining leases this year.
“We have been liaising closely with Como for several months and were very pleased to be able to retain them to provide us with this vital advice and input to our subsequent Scoping Study,” Mr Kidd said.
“Como’s intimate knowledge of the GAM Plant, plus their experience with gold processing in Cloncurry will provide a high level of confidence in their conclusions and recommendations.
“We meet with Como electronically on a weekly basis, with numerous emailed exchanges in between, and the work is proceeding smoothly such that I think both companies will be pleased with the result, which will then form a sound & vital component of our Scoping Study.
“The Golden Mile is a Joint Venture between Ausmex (80%) and Round Oak Minerals (20%). Under the Joint Venture terms, there is a binding agreement to process all ore from the Golden Mile at the Great Australia Mine ore processing facility.
“We also thank Round Oak for their cooperation with our retaining Como and hope that it will lead to further close collaboration as we move towards production.”
