INTERESTING UPCOMING EVENTS AND NEWS:


ALKANE RESOURCES DUBBO ZIRCONIA PROJECT

The Dubbo Zirconia Project (DZP) is an exciting development project based on one of the world's largest in-ground resources of rare metals and rare earths. Due to the size of the resource, the mine is expected to process 1,000,000 tonnes of ore throughput per year over a period of 70 years or more. The DZP will produce a strategic and alternative supply of rare metals (zirconium, hafnium, niobium, tantalum), yttrium and rare earth elements to the global market. A demonstration pilot plant (DPP) at ANSTO has been running since 2008, allowing Alkane to prove the DZP's technical and financial viability. The DPP has resulted in the development of a working flowsheet and verified resource extraction and processing methods.

Eighty Edwards is proud to be associated with Alkane Resources, supplying PRONTO process, procedure and training support to the plant maintenance team.
