Clean TeQ awarded contract for uranium processing plant

Heathgate is a leader in the Australian uranium industry using low environmental impact in-situ recovery (ISR). Clean TeQ’s continuous ion exchange technology can deliver an increased uranium tenor and minimise water use to achieve this outcome, both improving the efficiency of the operation as well as sustainability.

The contract has a total value of around US$5.6 million. The preliminary design phase has already been completed as of the end of August 2023. The project has a 40-week delivery time from the commencement of the contract. Heathgate Resources will perform the installation which is anticipated to take six months. Commissioning of the plant will then take place over eight weeks following installation handover.

Peter Voigt, CEO of Clean TeQ Water, comments:

“We are delighted to be supporting Heathgate in this important project. The implementation of the Clean-IX continuous ion exchange technology at an Australian uranium mine is a major achievement for the company. Clean TeQ Water aims to be the preferred company for clients seeking the best available technology partner for water and metal recovery projects.”

Early design work commenced in July 2023 under a Stage 1 of the agreement and no conditions precedent are attached to the design, supply, project management, and commissioning agreement. The contract is subject to standard terms, conditions in respect of extensions of time, and warranties typical of a design, procure, supply, and commission contract. The contract does include a clause for termination for convenience provision with at least one month’s written notice. The company also confirms that there is no other material information in relation to this design, supply, project management, and commissioning agreement.
