Client: DRD Gold; South Deep Gold Mine
Description: The South Deep Gold Mine project was designed and planned by the Stefanutti Stocks team, and sold to the client as a one-stop-shop solution. The mine’s pump station is currently one of the most modern reclamation pump stations in the country and is yielding impressive results. The award of the second reclamation project, at DRD Gold’s Ergo mine, was a significant coup for the division.
The total slime reclamation production tonnage between these two projects will be in excess of 450 000 tons per month, with the possible ramping up to in excess of 600 000 tons per month, in one year. The projected recovery is around 0.4 gm per ton, which equates to 240kg of gold.
