Gross Gold Mine
Como Engineers were engaged by Nordgold, based in Moscow, Russia, for the detailed engineering design and construction of the elution, carbon regeneration, goldroom and carbon recovery systems of their Gross Gold project.
The Gross Gold Project is a gold heap leach facility that will produce 230kozAu/y from the treatment of 12Mtpa for a 17 year period. The mine processing facility is located in the Yakutiya region in the far east of Russia, where temperatures can reach -55°C.
