Savannah Resources said construction of a pilot plant for its bulk metallurgical test-work programme at the Mutamba mineral sands project in Mozambique is complete.
Commissioning is expected to be wrapped up by the end of 2017, the company said.
“The pilot plant construction work has been completed on time and on budget and maintains the consortium’s fast-paced approach towards the project including the delivery of a scoping study earlier this year,” chief executive David Archer said.
“Upon completion of commissioning, the plant will provide concentrate bulk samples for analysis and the preparation of final products for test marketing. The completion of the plant is another key milestone for the Mutamba Consortium as we move the project towards a development decision.”
