Following the successful recommissioning of the facility (including the in-situ leaching operation), Southern Cross commissioned a number of studies aimed at determining the scope and costs of a new plant at the site (and associated infrastructure and in-situ operations).
The original plant has a capacity to produce 100 t/y U3O8 equivalent; the studies considered production cases of up to 1 000 t/y U3O8 equivalent.
Ausenco’s scope included the EPCM services for the refurbishment and recommissioning of the original Honeymoon Facility; support services for the trial facility operations as required; and study services for the new plant studies.
