A feasibility study was completed in 2004. The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was approved in Q1 2011 and funding was approved in Q3 2011; however the project was suspended in November 2011 following severe local conflicts.
In 2016, the reserves were reclassified as resources. The accompanying analysis conservatively assumes first production in 2024.
