Kamoa-Kakula Phase 1 and 2 de-bottlenecking plans approved

A de-bottlenecking plan for TSX-listed Ivanhoe Mines’ 39.6%-owned Kamoa-Kakula project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been approved by Ivanhoe’s board and will increase the combined design processing capacity of the Phase 1 and Phase 2 concentrator plants by about 21%.

Once steady-state production is achieved at both concentrators, the plants will be able to process 9.2-million tonnes of ore, up from the previously planned 7.6-million tonnes a year, Ivanhoe co-chairpersons Robert Friedland and Yufeng “Miles” Sun said on February 22.
