Since mid-2020 DRA Global has been the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management (EPCM) contractor at Assmang’s, Khumani Iron Ore mine in Northern Cape, South Africa. Assmang is jointly owned by African Rainbow Minerals Limited and Assore Limited.
At site, DRA is working on the Khumani discard spreader system project which is a brownfield expansion project intended to replace the current fleet-operated discard handling method.
The new system will tie-in to the existing bypass conveyor and allow material to be discharged with an overland conveyor and spreader system, while reducing dozing effort.
DRA has a strong working relationship with Assmang and constructed the original processing plant at the mine in 2008.
