What we offer the mining industry
INFRASTRUCTURE FOR A GOLD MINE IN MAURITANIA
Since 2011, Canadian-based gold mining company Kinross has commissioned Ortec subsidiary Friedlander Mauritania to work on several construction projects at its open-pit gold mine in Tasiast, 300 km north of Nouakchott. The main objective is to build a pipeline to supply the site with water, which is essential to mine the ore.
CONSTRUCTION OF METAL INFRASTRUCTURE IN BURKINA FASO
Engineering firm Lycopodium Minerals has commissioned Friendlander to build and install the metal infrastructure for the Bouly gold mine in Burkina Faso, on behalf of Russian company Nordgold. The project – which aims to raise gold production to 120,000 ounces per year throughout the mine’s lifetime – involves 130 people.
MANGANESE PROCESSING IN GABON
Ortec’s International Contracting centre has helped to build and install a manganese processing plant in Gabon on behalf of Nouvelle Gabon Mining, a subsidiary of Indian company Coalsale.
The production unit, which has a capacity of 300,000 tonnes per year, should be supplemented by a second unit with a capacity of 2 million tonnes.
