MMG has announced that Perth-based company Minnovo will carry out the final and detailed design engineering of the Dugald River processing plant and other infrastructure.

Minnovo describes itself as an engineering services provider formed and managed by a group of experienced engineering professionals.

The team has extensive and successful backgrounds in the design and construction of mineral processing facilities and their associated infrastructure requirements across a wide range of mineral commodities and unit processes.

Project management will be undertaken by WorleyParsons.

The updated plan for Dugald River, released in July this year, included a mine production rate of 1.5 million tonnes per annum and construction of concentrator, operations manager Dugald River Paul Harris said.

The concentrator will have an annual production of approximately 160,000 tonnes of zinc in zinc concentrate, plus by-products, over an estimated 28 year mine life, Mr Harris said.

“Construction of processing infrastructure will start in 2016, with commercial production scheduled to begin in 2018,” he said.

“Up to 600 people will be employed during the construction phase. When operational, Dugald River’s workforce will be approximately 400 people.”

Potential suppliers to MMG Dugald River are directed to a single point of contact to register expressions of interest.

That point is the following email:  AUDRM.supreg@mmg.com.  The subject heading needs to read ‘DRM Supplier Registration – (company name)’.

Companies are asked to provide information about their business, experience in the resources sector and contact information (including website).

MMG encouraged expressions of interest from companies who could fulfill the criteria for specific contracts, Mr Harris said.

“Included among these are potential suppliers from regional Queensland,” he said. “MMG Dugald River has a proud record of engaging with local suppliers in North West Queensland.”

The company stresses that all new supplier inquiries are managed out of MMG’s Group office in Melbourne, rather than onsite at Dugald River.

General inquiry about Dugald River can be directed to Dugald River’s Community Engagement Advisor Liam Rigg at liam.rigg@mmg.com.
