Located on the Northern tip of Masbate Island (Philippines) this remote mine site has a process plant that is a conventional carbon-in-leach (CIL) facility consisting of primary crushing, SAG/Ball Mill grinding circuit with pebble crushing, leaching, absorption, elution, electrowinning and smelting gold recovery stages; and a cyanide detoxification stage for treating process plant tails before disposal in a new tailings storage facility (TSF).
The site recently produced an annual record of 206,224 ounces of gold for 2016. This is above the mid-point of the sites revised production guidance range (200,000 to 210,000 ounces) and significantly exceeds its initial guidance range (of 175,000 to 185,000 ounces). IMR have been providing customised services to this project since site inception. We play a recognised role in ensuring the sites efficient running and improved processing turnover.
We have worked with management to design and implement customised-cost effective approaches to maintenance programs without sacrificing quality. This includes in-depth training of local staff and has enabled the site to operate with reduced expenditures throughout a local economic downturn. We are proud that through our partnership and practical influence on the safety of the operational environment, the site has won a golden rule standards award for safety.
