The project involved the construction of a modularised Primary Crushing Plant (PCP) 8.4km, Overland Conveyor (OLC) and transfer station, tying in the new crushing and conveying system to the existing coarse ore stockpile feed conveyor.

A key factor which led to Primero’s engagement was its strong performance on a number of prior projects.

The team Primero put forward was known by the client as a strong performer, this continuity gave the client comfort that the execution phase of project would be delivered well.
