Design, Construction & Commissioning

DRA Global was awarded the LSTK contract for the Everest chrome spirals plant in 2008 and was responsible for the design, construction and commissioning of the 380 tph plant.

The process design of the Everest Spiral Plant is based on the fully operating plant at the Mototolo Concentrator, also designed by DRA Global. The process consists of three concentration steps (rougher, cleaner and re-cleaner) to produce a final concentrate (the rougher spiral concentrates and middlings are treated separately in parallel streams). In addition, three stages of scavenging treat the combined cleaner and re-cleaner tails to capture misplaced chromite. DRA Global successfully completed the project in Q1 2010.
