Ausenco performed a feasibility study on the evaluation of use of uranium resources which occur with, and adjacent to, the Lumwana Copper Project ore bodies in Zambia, Africa.
The four phase study program was designed to review Equinox Minerals’ 2003 uranium study including:
- Resources / reserves
- Metallurgy and process plant design
- Further metallurgical testwork
- Processing plant and infrastructure to produce yellowcake on-site
- Capital and operating cost estimates with an accuracy of ±15%
