The team at Como Engineers Pty Ltd are extremely pleased to announce being awarded the supply of a 2 tonne Modular Elution, Carbon Regeneration and Gold Room plant to Al Masane Al Kobra Mining Co. (AMAK) for their Guyan Gold Project where site construction will start in the last quarter of this year in Saudi Arabia.
Jabal Guyan is a gold deposit located in the Arabian Peninsula, south west Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It lays about 414 km away from Jazan Port on the Red Sea, connected to Najran by a newly paved road, and 835 km away from Jeddah.
The Modular Elution Circuit and Gold Room equipment will be fabricated and hot run tested in our workshop in North Fremantle, with the Carbon Regeneration Kiln being supplied from Custom Furnaces in South Africa. Como Engineers are the worldwide agent for Custom Furnaces and the supply of equipment into Saudi Arabia is a first for Como Engineers and second for Custom Furnaces. The major benefit Como Engineers Modular Plant has is the site construction time, which is significantly reduced from a standard “stick built” plant. Other than the kiln, which is loaded onto a flat rack, the entire plant is packed into standard shipping containers for transport to site. The site construction time for this 2 tonne plant will be less than 3 weeks from when we open the sea container doors on site to when it is ready for accepting loaded carbon and commissioning to commence. The fast off-site construction time and complete hot run testing in our workshop guarantees a reduced on-site commissioning period – the first gold pour will be a matter of days once commissioning starts.
Savas Sahin (CEO, AMAK) said about the choice to use the Como Modular Elution Plant:
“We are also pleased to have selected Como Engineers for our Guyan Gold Project’s ADR unit. Apart from their good feedback from other operations who worked with Como, their professional approach also gave us the confidence to select Como for Guyan Project.
AMAK is already operating a large underground copper and zinc mine in the same region where main products are copper concentrate and zinc concentrate; by-products are gold and silver bullions. After the commercial production at Guyan Gold Project commences, AMAK will be filing for Initial Public Offering (IPO) in Riyadh Stock Exchange, Tadawul in 2020. Therefore, timely commissioning of Guyan is of paramount importance for our business model and Como is one of the business partners we are comfortably relying upon.”
