Wolf Minerals Limited (ASX:WLF,AIM:WLFE) has provided an update on the ongoing mine construction at its Hemerdon Tungesten project in Devon, UK. Construction of the mine is well underway and is slated to finish on schedule. The project should be turned over to Wolf from builder GR Engineering Services Limited (ASX:GNG) by Q3 of 2015.
As quoted in the press release:
The initial phase of construction activity at the project has been site preparation, which is now almost complete. Earthworks at the processing plant site are almost complete, and the site is being cleared and old plant infrastructure is being demolished. It is anticipated that that the site will be totally cleared by early June 2014. The first concrete pour for the project’s processing plant took place in late May. Wolf has also commenced an extensive tree-planting program atthe Hemerdon site with over 40,000 trees planted.
Wolf Minerals Managing Director, Russell Clark, said:
We are delighted with the level of activity and progress achieved to date at the Hemerdon project site. The Company’s project management team and our EPC contractor, GR Engineering, are working extremely well together and construction remains on schedule for the project to be completed on time and on budget in the third quarter of 2015. The next key steps will be further concrete pours at the processing plant and the commencement of the mine waste facility, and we look forward to reporting further updates on construction progress in due course.
