MDM project pipeline shift

MDM awarded Gold Fields Tarkwa Study

19 July 2010

Gold Fields Ghana has asked MDM Engineering Group Limited (“MDM”) to complete conceptual studies for the reclamation and reprocessing of the South Heap Leach Pads as well as the optimisation of the CIL crushing plant at its Tarkwa mine.  

Gold Fields Ghana requested an evaluation of the reclamation and retreatment of the South Heap Leach Pads at Tarkwa. Concurrently the miner needed to optimise the crushing plant for Tarkwa’s CIL and NHL operations.

MDM will undertake a conceptual study to examine existing test work, plant operations and plant equipment and subsequently develop flow sheets to achieve the set objectives.

George Bennett, MDM Executive Director commented:
“We are looking forward to this project, particularly as we undertook and completed the pre-feasibility study for Tarkwa’s first CIL plant in 2000. The extensive site experience of our senior management at the time is still with MDM and will be beneficial for the current conceptual study.”
