Fluor was awarded the engineering phase of the LMTRTP in 2014. The new 2 Mt/a plant will recover the existing coarse diamond tailings mineral resource and extend the life-of-mine of the Letlhakane operation by 20 years.
The design of this stand-alone plant is centered on a modular approach. The main process areas such as the Dense-Media Separation (DMS), scrubbing and crushing buildings have been designed in such a manner as to allow them to be fully constructed from fit-for-purpose modules, thereby accelerating project execution.
Fluor completed construction for the LMTRTP in November 2017.
