Guelb Moghrein Data

Guelb Moghrein Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    Mining at Guelb Moghrein is carried out in a single open pit using hydraulic excavators and mechanical drive haul trucks. Sulphide ore is treated in the processing plant at Guelb Moghrein to produce a copper-gold concentrate from the copper flotation circuit and dor bullion from the gold flotation/CIL circuit. Gold mining was first started here in 1970 but the mine was closed in 1978 before being reopened by First Quantum. The Occidental deposit at Guelb Moghrein is considered to be an example of the Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) type deposit that, in terms of its structure and mineralogy, has common features with other IOCG deposits elsewhere in the world. The mineralization is predominantly hosted by ferromagnesian carbonates (FMC). The copper-gold mineralization is hosted primarily within chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite. Magnetite becomes abundant outside the sulphide rich zones of the FMC. The Occidental deposit extends approximately 600 meters along strike and dips to the southwest at 30º to 40º. The eastern and western flanks of the Occidental deposit are fault bounded and the deposit is open at depth.
