Mineral Processing Plant
The Processing Plant, as proposed, would reduce 1,018,000 tonnes of graphite mineralization with an average grade of 7% Cg to 60,000 tonnes of graphite concentrate at 95% Cg per year, once full production is reached in Year 6. The process equipment includes multiple crushers and flotation circuits as well as drying and packaging equipment. It would operate 330 days each year. The dried concentrate would be packaged in one tonne super sacks and loaded in containers. The containers would then be shipped by truck, based on the PEA, about 50 miles to the Port of Nome, stored, and barged seasonally to the Manufacturing Plant.
