The group also said construction of earthworks for the Main Water Dam and Return Water Dam were recently completed, with under-drainage works nearing completion, and dam liners being manufactured.

It added that the mining of waste from the open pit area for run-of-mine pad fill material has commenced as well and the first process plant equipment has been delivered to site.

In its construction update, Ormonde said some 100 people are now working on the project, including 32 from Barruecopardo and surrounding communities.

Michael Donoghue, Ormonde's interim managing director said: “There have been a number of significant advances seen during the latest quarter” and “plant erection and installation scheduled for the early part of 2018."
