Video: Aerial footage of Tasiast’s Phase One expansion

Watch this aerial footage from late April 2017 of the Tasiast Phase One expansion project and see how construction is progressing at the primary crusher, stockpile, conveyor and reclaim tunnel.

The project is on schedule and on budget to reach full production by Q2 2018. Once complete, the expansion is expected to increase mill throughput from 8,000 t/d to 12,000 t/d. This increase will almost double production to approximately 400,000 Au eq. oz. per year, while substantially reducing operating costs.

A Phase Two feasibility study is currently ongoing, and is expected to be completed in Q3 2017. The Phase Two expansion would increase capacity to 30,000 t/d growing yearly production to 780,000 Au eq. oz.
