Western Areas (ASX:WSA) has announced that the Mill Recovery Enhancement project has been commissioned and is producing premium high grade nickel sulfides as planned.
According to the press release, the plant was completed on time and within budget, and now normal ramp-up activities are underway including the construction of dedicated filtration and bagging facilities.
As quoted in the press release:
Western Areas managing director Dan Lougher said, “Our focus now turns to post commissioning ramp up to nameplate capacity and completing filtration and bagging facility works in order to sell the high grade product under a separate off-take agreement. With significant interest in this new product, including parties related to the electric vehicle sector, we have hosted many site visits in recent months and have also received indicative off-take terms. We will soon commence dispatching samples to a select group of potential customers as part of securing a new off-take agreement.
