Upon resumption of mining, Metro intends is to build significant stockpiles of screened and unscreened material before transhipping operations resume.

Loading of the first ocean-going vessel in 2019 is planned for mid-April.

While delivering its near-term expansion, the company is also progressing well with refreshing the definitive feasibility study (DFS) for the stage II expansion at Bauxite Hills to 6 million tonnes per annum.

This updated DFS is expected to be delivered in the June quarter.
