Tiger Resources on track for copper production at Kipoi Project


Emerging copper producer Tiger Resources (ASX, TSX: TGS) has updated progress for the Stage 1 development at its Kipoi Copper Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), remaining on schedule and within budget for the commencement of commercial production in the first quarter of 2011.

During the three-year life of Stage 1 Tiger plans to produce approximately 35,000t per annum of copper.

Since the commencement of the Stage 1 development at Kipoi in July 2010, 106 hectares of land has been cleared by mining and civil works contractor MCK Trucks sprl for the process plant, heap leach pads, slimes storage pond, access road and haul road to the pit.

The stripped topsoil has been stockpiled, ready for rehabilitation, and the plant site area has been compacted. Mining waste pre-stripping is planned to commence in early November 2010.

DRA Mineral Projects (Pty) Ltd was awarded the lump sum turnkey (LSTK) contract in July, which includes the design, construction, installation and commissioning of the heavy media separation (HMS) plant.

DRA is 80 per cent through the detailed design of the HMS plant and all major component equipment has been purchased, including crusher circuit, dense media separator and the spirals.

Major equipment items are being freighted to South Africa, test erected then dismantled and sent to site. Group Five Ltd will assist DRA with the site construction of the HMS plant, which is to commence in October 2010.

Group Five is a highly respected South African construction company with an excellent record of delivering projects in the DRC.

Tiger has finalised recruitment of the Project Management and Operational Management Teams and is now well resourced to manage the construction and development process.
