$27.6m plant upgrade approved for Tucano

The board of gold miner Beadell Resources has approved a $27.6-million upgrade of its Tucano gold plant, in Brazil, following a positive feasibility study.

The study considered the addition of a 6 MW ball mill, high-rate thickener, an additional leach tank and an oxygen sparging system, which will enable the Tucano plant to process a mix of sulphide and oxide mill feed and to process head grades in line with the reserve grade consistently.
