South America: Dominga iron ore

In 2011, SRK commenced a pre-feasibility engineering study for Andes Iron’s Dominga project in Chile. The study was completed in late 2013, based on a 95ktpd iron ore mine with two pits. The work included resource estimation, pit slope geotechnics, mine design and production schedule, Fe-Cu mineral processing, power and water supply. It also involved a reverse osmosis water treatment plant and a 26km-long slurry pipeline for transporting iron concentrate, a filter plant, tailings dam and port, as well as capex, opex and economic evaluation.
