BGER is executing the study for the proposed tertiary cyclone process plant upgrade at Paraburdoo. There is a significant opportunity to recover alternate size range particles from future plant feed. Recovering this material will decrease plant per/ton operation costs, increase production and reduce life of mine (LOM) TSF costs.

Installing this process infrastructure will also enable increased potential for future recovery of high-grade SOP that has been deposited over the course of the operational life in the Paraburdoo TSF. The tertiary cyclone project aim to improve plant recovery, through improvement of fines production, reducing per ton operation costs and decreasing LOM capital costs.
