In 2019 DRA Global was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Dargues Gold Mine in New South Wales, Australia. Dargues is owned by Diversified Minerals (“Diversified Minerals”) Pty Ltd, an associated company of PYBAR Mining Services Pty Ltd, a leading underground mining services company within the Australian resources sector who will be developing and operating the project’s underground mine and other infrastructure.
DRA Global’s project scope entails the engineering, procurement and construction of a 355,000tpa capacity gold processing facility and mine backfill plant at the Dargues gold mine. The processing plant will comprise crushing, milling, flotation and filtration circuits and produce a sulphide concentrate for export. The mine will produce an average of 50,000oz of gold per annum in the first six years of production. Site work commenced in February 2019 and first ore is expected to be processed in early 2020.
