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.
