The Cracow upgrade was designed to increase the plant production throughput from the existing 450ktpa gold processing plant to 550ktpa.
The project included the removal of 1.5 MW ball mill from Telfer, transport, refurbishment and installation at Cracow, Qld.
Subsequently Como Engineers refurbished the 600 kW ball mill on site.

All new piping was installed throughout mill and leach tank areas with blasting and painting being undertaken for all existing structures and mill on site during production.
