The primary crushed ore is stockpiled on a kidney shaped stockpile by a radial, luffing stacker. Reclaim is by four apron feeders to conveyors which transport the material to the crushing and screening plant.
This plant consists of two secondary crushers, four tertiary crushers and four double deck screens. A series of overland belt conveyors transport the 3/8 inch leach pad feed to two reusable leach pads which are 4,000 feet long by 350 feet wide by 40 feet high. The material is deposited by a series of trippers and stackers, and a crawler-mounted bridge conveyor.
