The project is being developed in three phases. Surface oxide ores will be treated to recover gold and silver for the first two years of production. For the following three years copper concentrate will be produced from super-gene ore. Thereafter copper and zinc concentrates will be produced from the sulphide ore.
The project is to be developed in three distinct phases. Surface oxide ores were treated to recover gold and silver for the first two years of production ending 2013. For the following three years, including 2013, copper concentrate will be produced from a supergene ore. Thereafter, from the middle of 2016 both copper and zinc concentrates will be produced from the primary sulphide ore.
