Primero Strengthens its Minerals Processing Capability

Experienced in hard rock lithium/tantalum projects, Primero was called in as specialist engineers

to revisit modifications after delays at Galaxy Resources, Mt Cattlin operation in August.

The refurbishment and upgrade of Mt Cattlin has now passed 80% completion. Primero mobilised their team to site in late August to finalise the construction and completions packages and to begin implementing their planned commissioning and start-up program.

Since mobilising to site Primero has undertaken a complete gap analysis. Resequencing of a number of activities has enabled the construction to progress along the critical path elements to maintain focus on key areas of the plant for commissioning and ramp-up.

Primero has been further engaged to see through the project management for final stages of construction, commissioning and ramp-up of operations.

Galaxy now expects final commissioning and first production to be during November, with first shipment from the Port of Esperance during December 2016.
