Their scope of work includes:

  • To complete engineering for the solvent extraction (SX) circuit of the proposed hydrometallurgical complex for incorporation in the pending Pre-Feasibility Study
  • To undertake a Peer Review of key areas within the Pre-Feasibility report prior to its public release, these areas include process, site infrastructure, TDF, road, airstrip, port/wharf, Capex, Opex and execution plan.
  • To undertake a scoping-level study of a separation plant for the operation
  • To look at the feasibility of a Dry Milling complex at the front end of the hydrometallurgical complex as an alternative drawing on their experience at Gold Strike.

Quest Vice-President for Operations Colin Lindsey said:

The depth of the talent and experience that Hatch has assembled for the completion of critical pieces of our impending pre-feasibility study work represents an important supplement of our existing project team working on the B-Zone deposit development. We look forward to their contribution and input with our current partners on this study.
