Geologix – Tepal Pre-feasibility Study

Allnorth was contracted to design a sulphide process and heap leach ADR plant (for oxide ore), which included a truck shop and general site layout for the project. Responsibilities included sourcing and pricing equipment and re-designing the method of processing the oxide, which entailed using a grinding circuit to reduce the size of the existing heap leach feed. The new design made the project more efficient and lowered the cost of the leach facilities. A parallel change was the addition of a pyrite flotation plant followed by a leach circuit, again, resulting in an improved economic model for the operation.
