Minasco Australia has been appointed by Perth-based miner, Bass Metals Ltd., for the realization of its complete 1.5-million-metric-ton per year poly-metallic flotation plant at the Hellyer mine site in northwest Tasmania. The plant is to be offered for sale as a fully engineered operational entity for relocation to a new project, due to completion of mining at Hellyer.

Minasco’s expertise and past success in the realization of major mining assets worldwide for many of the leading mining companies has been well-documented.

With a current shortage in offering of quality mineral processing plants worldwide and the rise in the number of projects set for development, it is expected there will be strong competition for the acquisition of the Hellyer assets with a number of projects already expressing interest. The plant is in good condition and still fully operational, with anticipated completion of processing during June 2012. This will provide potential buyers an opportunity to inspect the plant running.

Minasco has instigated a pre-emptive dismantling and logistics program in conjunction with the expertise of consulting engineers, international shippers and local contractors, to ensure buyer delivery to any project worldwide is achieved on the most cost effective basis.
