A contracting company has won the primary tender for a precious metal mine expansion in Western Australia’s Goldfields-Esperance region.

GR Engineering Services (GRES) recently secured the engineering design, procurement and construction contract for Saracen Mineral Holdings’ $40 million Carosue Dam Gold Operations Plant Expansion Project, 120km northeast of Kalgoorlie.

Multiple upgrades

GRES is tasked with increasing the capacity of the existing mineral processing plant at the Carosue Dam gold operations to 3.2 million tonnes per annum.

This requires installing secondary grinding equipment and various upgrades to the existing carbon-in-leach circuit and other process infrastructure. QMEB can reveal the deal is worth $24.5M.
