Berg Aukas Information

  • Environmental 2015-08-27
    If the project proceeds to development a new Environmental Clearance Certificate (ECC) will be required. This will require submission of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Environmental Management Plan (EMP) to the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. It is expected that there will be considerable local support for the project to proceed and that during operation the considerable environmental legacies from previous mining operations will be rehabilitated and/or retreated.
  • Mining 2015-08-27
    Currently it is envisioned that the mining rate will ramp up to 250,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) hoisted by Year 3 of the operation. This is considered feasible as during the final six months of operation in 1978 the mine was hoisting at an annual rate of 258,000 tpa. After gravity pre-concentration the plant is expected to mill and process approximately 80,000tpa. The average LOM Ore Reserve grades, including dilution and after applying appropriate modifying factors, are expected to be approximately 11.16% Zn, 2.76% Pb, 0.23% V2O5 and 8.7 g/t Ag.
  • Equipment and Infrastructure 2015-08-27
    The existing electrical substation close to the mine site was initially constructed for the mining operation in the 1970's. The substation is now the major substation for Grootfontein and surrounding areas. After initial discussions with Nampower it is expected that up to 3MW will be available at the mine site, including the 750kVA currently used by Namwater in its pumping operations. Process water will be readily available from the dewatering of the underground workings. Currently NamWater (the parastatal water supply company) maintains a water pumping station in the No.2 Shaft for the supply of water regionally. The mine dewatering will generate far more water than will be used by mining or any of the processing options.
  • Processing 2015-08-27
    Metallurgical testwork was undertaken by Mintek in Johannesburg, under the supervision of Logiman. The testwork regime is focused on replicating and improving the successful sequential floatation process flow sheet used when the mine was in operation. In addition, considerable effort is being made to improve the pre-milling concentration of the ore using gravity separation.
  • General 2015-05-10
    The Berg Aukas deposit was worked from 1959 until closure in 1978, when production reached about 130 000 t/y of ore, producing an array of lead, zinc and vanadium concentrates. Based on historical records in place at the time of closure, the mine reserve was 1 651-million tons, grading 17% zinc, 5% lead and 0,6% vanadium pentoxide.
