NQ Minerals Plc has announced that haulage of gold bearing material from the Beaconsfield Wetlands environmental cleanup area to the Beaconsfield gold processing plant has now commenced.

NQ Minerals Chairman, David Lenigas, commented: “We now have a fleet of 6 trucks moving a significant amount of gold bearing material from the Wetland area, located to east of the Beaconsfield townsite, to the Beaconsfield processing plant area. This material has been deposited in the Wetlands area over the 100 years of historic mining at Beaconsfield and has been considered for many years to be an environmental issue that needed to be addressed. NQ plans to modify the Beaconsfield processing plant over the coming months to extract the gold from this material as a key component of our mine re-opening plans. Regular updates on tonnage stockpiled at the plant, gold grades and metallurgical recoveries expected will be announced as material information becomes available.”

Such a partnership applies to new vehicles and retrofit projects, like replacing a diesel engine with an electric powertrain.
