"With substantial progress made on construction activities during the quarter, the project has now entered a transition period as construction activities begin to wind down and mine commissioning activities ramp up significantly,” said Michael Donoghue, Ormonde’s chairman and interim managing director.

Recent progress has seen the commissioning of the crush and screen plant near completion, the completion of the water treatment plant and the dewatering of the historic pit is ongoing with over 100,000 cubic metres (about 10%) pumped from the pit to the water dams.

At the processing plant, the installation of equipment and supporting structures are said to be almost complete, pipe and electrical installation are described as very advanced and the commissioning has begun for some circuits.

Contracts have been awarded for the open pit mining, and, the workforce is being hired a trained.

Donoghue added: “It is particularly pleasing to have recently completed the recruitment of the first wave of plant operators, and to see the commencement of process plant commissioning.”
