The Klen project is planned as an open pit operation utilising conventional mining methods. Mine life is estimated at 11 years. The process plant will comprise a carbon-in-leach (CIL) circuit with a design capacity of 300kt/a. In H1 2016, Highland Gold initiated a review of the project under current market conditions and approved preparation of an updated pre-feasibility study. Pending results of the revised pre-feasibility study, the accompanying analysis is indicative only and assumes 2027 as the start date for gold production.
