Gold plant capital cost

250,000 t/year sulphide flotation plant. GRES conducted a definitive feasibility study on the Kundip and Trilogy resources in 2011. These resources comprised 12 metallurgical domains with widely varying metallurgical characteristics. This resulted in a very complex process plant design. The final design had a capital cost of approximately $200M
