King River Resources Limited (ASX:KRR) has provided an update on the ongoing engineering and laboratory work which supports and enhances the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS).
The ASX announcement was released on 16 March 2022 by King River Resources. In the release authorised by Anthony Barton (King River Resources Chairman) the announcement details how over the course of the DFS ongoing laboratory work has identified a more economical and environmentally friendly way to produce High Purity Alumina. The announcement goes onto explain that the current plant design for the 2000tpa 5N Aluminium precursor plant design basis is for a highly modular plant to allow for both future production expansion and product variation therefore is unaffected by this development. Adding this additional process train into the scope of the DFS will open up more market opportunities for High Purity Metals giving it the option to produce either of the products depending on market demand.
Como Engineers has confirmed that this scope can be added into the DFS with no immediate impact to the project schedule.
