MDM project pipeline shift

MDM is awarded the Gold Fields Tarkwa (E)PCM Project in Ghana

12 September 2011

MDM Engineering PTY Ltd (“MDM”) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Gold Fields Ghana Limited (“GFGL”)  (E)PCM contract for their Tarkwa project in Ghana, which will include the provision of services for the CIL Crushing Plant Expansion Project.

GFGL owns and operates the Tarkwa gold mine located in south-western Ghana, about 300 km by road west of Accra, the capital.  It is situated 4 km west of the town of Tarkwa with good access roads and an established infrastructure.  The site consists of multiple open pits, two heap leach facilities and a CIL plant.

MDM completed a Conceptual Study for the CIL crushing optimisation in September 2010. The Conceptual Study examined the existing test work, plant operations and plant equipment in order to develop the flow sheets to best achieve the optimisation. In March 2011, detailed engineering and design was submitted and based on this, MDM will be moving forward with expanding the project.

Martin Smith, MDM CEO said:
 “We are thrilled to have been awarded the next phase of the Tarkwa project.  We have been working with the Gold Fields team for some time now and believe that we have added value to the project with our extensive gold experience and working knowledge in Ghana.”
