:: GRD Minproc Awarded Olympic Dam Contract
GRD Limited has announced that GRD Minproc has been awarded the contract to undertake preliminary engineering for a demonstration uranium process plant as part of BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam Expansion Project.
Olympic Dam is the world’s largest uranium deposit, a world scale copper resource and also produces gold and silver. The demonstration plant will be used to evaluate uranium recovery processes.
GRD Limited Chief Executive Cliff Lawrenson said the award of the contract was recognition of GRD Minproc’s ability to innovatively apply processing solutions to world class projects. “Our people are world leaders in resource recovery," Mr Lawrenson said. “GRD Minproc is excited to again be working with BHP Billiton, this time on a component of the Olympic Dam Expansion Project, which proposes to more than double the current production capacity." GRD Minproc is also a joint venture partner helping deliver BHP Billiton’s Ravensthorpe Nickel Project in Western Australia.
