In January 2017 DRA was approached by Assmang Limited (Assmang) to commence with the early scoping and initiation activities required for its Black Rock Mine Operations (BRMO) in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. The feasibility study aimed to optimise the Gloria Mine surface and underground infrastructure.
To achieve this, a few key objectives were identified namely, optimisation and modernisation of the Gloria mine to provide the flexibility needed to sustain the Life of Mine production expectations through the replacement of underground rock handling infrastructure as well as development of a new surface plant and its associated infrastructure.
Subsequent to the successful completion of the feasibility study, in June 2018 Assmang approved the full project implementation in accordance with DRA’s proposed implementation strategy.
Services related to the project scope on an EPCM basis are summarised below:
DRA provided Assmang with a complete integrated solution for its Gloria Project, from the mining development and associated infrastructure to the processing plant facilities, seeing the project
through from scoping and concept phases to successful execution.
