The plant will consist of a 4-stage crushing plant and concentrator, employing dense media separation and gravity concentration circuits.

Contractors will be employed for the drilling, blasting, loading and hauling of mining material.

AfriTin will also use the plant as the basis of a bankable feasibility study for a Phase 2 operation that will process 3mln tonnes of ore per year producing approximately 5,500 tonnes of tin concentrate.

Anthony Viljoen, chief executive, said: "We are pleased to present further progress at Uis and are now a step closer to producing first tin.”
