Anax Metals, which is advancing its plans for a polymetallic sulphide concentrator facility at its Whim Creek copper operation in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, has tapped Gekko Systems as plant design consultant.

The plant, which will be designed to process about 320,000 tonnes of pre-concentrate annually, will be fed with primary sorted ore and upgraded fines from the gravity circuit. It and its associated infrastructure will be modular, begin fabricated in-factory in Victoria and then assembled on skids in a prior to transport and installation at the site.

MD Geoff Laing noted this method will offer the customer benefit, and also reduce site-related construction costs.

“[We] look forward to delivering a cost-effective modular plant for Whim Creek,” Laing said. “Modularisation is a key element of the ‘Anax Blueprint’, which is expected to deliver leveraged outcomes to our projects.”

A definitive feasibility study for the project is now in progress and is expected to be complete in the second quarter of this year.

Anax first announced the completion of a scoping study for the Whim Creek concentrator in August 2021.
