Four key optimisation opportunities:
- Process plant tailings handling and storage: LOM management of tailings (Capex + Opex). (Q4 2018).
- Metal recoveries: Design criteria used during the PFS was based on batch testwork. Larger scale testing will be conducted during the BFS targeting increased metal recoveries. (Q2 2019).
- Power pricing: Power represents 22% of site cash costs. Focus upon energy storage (batteries), process plant operating philosophies, frequency & grid stability options. (Q2 2019).
- Mine life: Extend project life by treating ore from inferred inventories from known resources and from other sources beyond Thackaringa. (Q1 2019).
