On production, the completion of the Stage 2 Plant Expansion commissioning represents a major step-change for Kainantu’s production capabilities, doubling mill throughput from 200,000 tpa (~550 tpd) to 400,000 tpa (~1,100 tpd). Since completing commissioning, the operation has performed well, and we expect a strong finish to 2020.”
