Debswana’s Letlhakane set for 2017 commissioning

19 october 2016
Debswana’s Letlhakane mine tailings resource treatment plant project (LMTRTP) is set to be commissioned next year with construction work of the project currently 80 percent complete.
“The plant will undergo C5 commissioning and attain full production from the third quarter of 2017,” Mining Weekly quoted Debswana corporate affairs manager Naledi Dikgomo-Goulden as saying.
The construction of the plant commenced in the first quarter of 2015.
The objective of the project was to deliver sustained and profitable operations at Letlhakane beyond the end-of-life of openpit mining.
The LMTRTP was expected to achieve a yearly production of 800 000 carats of diamonds and would provide specifically designed mining and treatment solutions to ensure optimal economic recovery of the coarse tailings mineral resource, thereby extending the life-of-mine by 25 years, Mining Weekly reports.
