Published on: 10th June, 2014 North Star Magnetite Project Stage 2 – Value Improvement Study
Following on from the design work carried out on Stage 1 of the North Star Magnetite Project, Iron Bridge have engaged Onyx Projects to move onto the Value Improvement Study phase for Stage 2. This involves looking at a number of options that remain open from the previous study phase carried out with a view to being able to propose a single Go Forward option into the subsequent DFS. The options to be reviewed encompass the process plant, water supply from the Canning Basin, delivery of product to the port and non-process infrastructure. The study will also include a detailed metallurgical test plan and test work to support the geomet model and construction of a small pilot plant to assist with carrying out the required test work.
The study will deliver an overall 3 dimensional model of the Go Forward process plant option that will be prepared using Smartplant.
