MDM Engineering Group Ltd. has signed the EPC contract for the execution of a 2.4 million metric tons per year (mt/y) gold plant for African Barrick Gold’s (ABG) Bulyanhulu process plant expansion project in Tanzania. ABG is the largest gold producer in Tanzania with a portfolio of four operating mines and is the owner and operator of Bulyanhulu gold mine.
“We have been working on the Bulyanhulu project since August 2011 and are delighted to have now signed the formal EPC execution contract,” said George Bennett, executive director, MDM. “The team’s comprehensive gold experience, coupled with our in-depth working knowledge of Tanzania, will ensure a streamlined project. We look forward to a successful working relationship with African Barrick Gold.”
MDM successfully completed the bankable feasibility study in December 2011 followed by value engineering in March and April 2012. MDM is now executing the project that includes construction of a new 2.4 million my/y carbon in leach facility to process tailings reclaimed from the historical tailings concurrently with current flotation tailings.
