Kibo Mining has completed the independent, integrated Water Availability Study for the Mbeya coal-to-power project (MCPP).
The study determines sustainable groundwater yields and pit inflows through aquifer testing and numerical flow monitoring. It concluded that the available groundwater would be sufficient and sustainable to supply the power plant with water.
“We are delighted with the outcome of the Water Availability Study,” said Louis Coetzee, CEO of Kibo Mining. “With yet another work stream completed, we are getting ever closer to concluding work on the MCPP feasibility studies.”
The MCPP is a 250 – 350 MW minemouth power plant based on a thermal coal deposit in Mbeya in southwest Tanzania.
Kibo is currently in the process of completed an integrated bankable feasibility study for the combined mining and power aspects of the project with release expected in the near term.
