Mining and ore processing at Sugar Zone Longitudinal long-hole retreat stoping method, with paste backfill used as the primary fill type, has been selected as the mining method for the Sugar Zone underground project. The mine produces at a nominal rate of tonnes per day tpd in the first phase. The throughput will be increased to tpd in the second phase, which is expected in The production will be further increased to 1,tpd in the third phase.
Sugar Zone gold project construction The construction of the crusher and mill complex was completed in August The crushing spread and mill complex were commissioned using on-site generators. Detailed engineering of the processing plant began in the first quarter of , while long lead equipment purchases were made in the second quarter of The expanded processing plant and flotation concentrate leaching circuit are expected to be installed by the end of and will come online in The works also included the construction of a 44km power line from White River to the mine site.
Infrastructure The Sugar Zone gold project is readily accessed from Trans Canada via Highway , a secondary paved highway, followed by a gravel haulage road extending for approximately 20km. A temporary Contractors involved Redpath was awarded the contract for conducting underground development works at Sugar Zone, while Foraco International was engaged to conduct long-hole drilling for stope development.
Halyard was commissioned to design and construct the on-site mill. Welcome to the FitBit era for metals and mining. What makes a mine smart? Tailored solution helped to reopen Barruecopardo tungsten mine. Harte said the flotation concentrate that exceeds its expected grades is now being shipped for processing at the Horne Smelter.

It is also still recovering gold via gravity circuit at the site that is formed into dore bars for shipping. Additionally, mill operations, now stabilised, are allowing the company to achieve its permitted throughput. Higher-grade underground material and the surface stockpile are currently the feed for the facility, though its plan is to transition to solely underground material by early next year. Crews are now performing the mine planning for and Sugar Zone's life-of-mine. The plans will include a "significant amount" of definition drilling that was completed this year but which was not included in the preliminary economic assessment PEA.
Once that work is complete early next year, the miner will release its guidance for the operation.

We plan to continue testing this theory with further exploration in , assisted by downhole geophysics. The wholly owned Sugar Zone mine, located in White River, has an indicated mineral resource of 2. It also has an inferred mineral resource of 3. Newmont Goldcorp approves Tanami Expansion 2.
