Refurbishment included repairs to the EW Cell tankhouse cells including the anodes and cathodes, rectifier and heat exchanger repairs, SXEW settler and tank lid refurbishment, installation of new electrolyte and lixiviant tanks, new acid delivery system to the pad agglomerator and pond irrigation refurbishment.
The refurbishment also included the Installation of a new 80 man camp including new dry mess and new sewerage processing system with MATV and Internet Access to rooms.
