Gekko Systems has executed a construction contract with Group 6 Metals Ltd for the design, procurement, construction, and commissioning of the processing plant and related facilities for the redevelopment of the G6M’s 100%-owned Dolphin Mine, located on King Island.
The contract, which has a value of approximately US$49 million, anticipates the commissioning of the facilities in the first calendar quarter 2023. Based on this timing the first shipment of ore from the Dolphin Mine to customers will also occur during 1Q23.
Gekko has been engaged with G6M over the last three years, and together they have formulated the flowsheet which was developed after extensive independent test work at the ALS laboratory undertaken on behalf of G6M in Burnie, Tasmania.
Following the execution of the contract, G6M is scheduled to commence earthworks early in 1Q22, in preparation of the civil works commencing soon thereafter.
