The Esaase overland conveyor system will be used at the company’s Asanko gold mine in Ghana.
The project consists of two stages: the FEED and the execution of the balance of the project. It forms part of Asanko’s phase two development plan to build an open pit gold mine, including mining and crushing infrastructure, at the Esaase deposit and to construct a 27 km overland conveyor to transport ore to the existing processing facility at Obotan, Ghana.
The project is a significant contract for ELB Engineering Services and is the outcome of months of joint efforts to achieve an optimal engineered integrated solution.
The combined phases of the project are expected to take up to twenty-two months to complete. The FEED will commence immediately.
“Engineering Services looks forward to its continued partnership with Asanko and to the successful undertaking of such a significant mining project in Ghana,” said ELB.
