  • Greenland Minerals And Energy Appoints Tetra Tech For Kvanefjeld Study 0 comments
    Jul 24, 2014 8:04 PM

    Greenland Minerals and Energy (ASX:GGG) has appointed Tetra Tech Proteus to complete key detailed engineering design aspects of the Feasibility Study for the Kvanefjeld rare earth-uranium project in southern Greenland.

    The study on the process facilities and related infrastructure will also be used for the Kvanefjeld Mining Licence application.

    Tetra Tech is a major engineering group with global reach and extensive arctic experience.

    It has more than 13,000 employees worldwide, an annual turnover of US$3 billion, and has been supporting mining operations for over 60 years.

    Perth-based Proteus is part of the Tetra Tech group of companies and has been providing engineering, construction and project management services to the Australian resources sector for 30 years.

    Tetra Tech‐Proteus's study is expected to be completed by the end of the October 2014.

    Proteus Engineers director David Sutton said the scale and the quality of the Kvanefjeld resource made it a major mining project in global terms.

    "Greenland Minerals and Energy have done an excellent job of defining a simple and low cost flowsheet which we will further design to Feasibility level," he added.

    "Through Tetra Tech we have the arctic experience and expertise to make the project a reality in the Greenland environment."

    Kvanefjeld resources are at 956 million tonnes, containing 575 million pounds uranium and 10.33Mt total rare earth oxide.

    Study Details

    The study will consist of Tetra Tech building upon the process design already completed by GGG's in-house technical team.

    Civil, electrical, mechanical and structural design of the process facilities will be completed.

    This will produce a comprehensive package of design information which will be provided to China Non‐Ferrous Metal Industry's Foreign Engineering and Construction Co. Ltd (NYSEMKT:NFC) for cost estimation.

    GGG has a Strategic Cooperation Agreement with NFC.
