TRX Gold Orders Additional Ball Mill for Buckreef Gold
Expanded Milling Capacity to Further Increase Gold Production
TORONTO, March 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TRX Gold Corporation (TSX: TNX) (NYSE American: TRX) (the “Company” or “TRX Gold”) is pleased to announce that a 1,000 tonne per day (“tpd”) capacity ball mill has been ordered for the Company’s Buckreef Gold Project. As previously disclosed in the Company’s January 16th press release, TRX Gold is committed to a short-term objective of increasing Buckreef Gold’s current average annual throughput of oxide ore by 75-100%, through the addition of this new mill.
- The 1,000 tpd mill has been ordered from CSI Energy Group (Tanzania) in partnership with Solo Resources Pty in South Africa, an equipment and services sector expert with over 30 years of experience in the sale, design, installation and commissioning of metallurgical processing equipment for various applications.
- The mill will have dimensions of 3,200 mm diameter by 4,500 mm equivalent grinding length and a 630 kW drive motor. The ball mill is the long-lead critical item and is scheduled to be shipped within 60 days, ex-works. Orders are in the final stages for several other major items of equipment including the crushing circuit upgrade equipment (apron feeder, vibrating grizzly and double deck screen), additional CIL inter-tank screens, and CIL agitators. Three more CIL leach tanks, with 400 m3 nominal capacity each, will be constructed on site to maintain the retention time above 24 hours.
- The mill expansion will occur simultaneously with the upgrade of the existing power supply, from the current 2.5 MVA to 5.0 MVA, through the addition of a second 2.5 MVA transformer on the national grid. TRX Gold remains committed to sustainable practices and is pleased that it will be able to rely on additional capacity from the national power grid, which is mainly powered by clean hydroelectricity.
The near doubling of milling capacity is expected to enable Buckreef Gold to increase gold production beyond current annual guidance of 20,000-25,000 ounces of gold. TRX Gold expects the commissioning of this project to occur early fiscal 2024, therefore benefiting gold production in the near-term. The Company will provide its annual gold production guidance for F2024 at a later date.
This is one of many growth projects that TRX Gold has outlined for F2023, in line with its business strategy of reinvesting cash flow from operations into value-accretive activities to create shareholder value.
Stephen Mullowney, TRX Gold Chief Executive Officer states, “We are very pleased to be making today’s announcement as we continue to prove to the market that we deliver on our objectives. A nod goes to our engineering consultants and construction and operations teams who built the current 1,000+ tpd mill, using larger tanks and agitators, with the optionality and foresight of creating an opportunity for this short-term expansion. Once this project is delivered, it will be our third mill expansion at Buckreef Gold; phenomenal growth for a junior gold mining company within a 24-month period.”
