Nugget Pond Processing Facility & Goodyear’s Cove Port
The Nugget Pond processing facility is a 500,000t per annum plant that consists of a conventional circuit that produces a high-quality concentrate typically grading 29% copper.
The plant consists of a crushing and grinding circuit made up of a two-stage jaw crusher, a semi-autogenous grind (SAG) and ball mill. The fine product is then fed to a standard flotation plant consisting of roughers, scavengers and three stage cleaners. The float product is then dewatered by a filter press and hauled to the Goodyear’s Cove Port facility, where the company owns a concentrate storage facility.
