The proposed Kokoseb Mine Project, Erongo Region, Namibia

Kokoseb Mine Project

Exclusive prospecting license (EPL 4818) is situated between Uis and Okomhahe, approximately 15km from Okombahe and 30km from Uis in the Erongo Region. It is envisaged that the mining operation at WIA Gold Project will be similar to that of B2Gold Otjikoto and QKR Navachab gold mines. Mining of the open pit will be conventional drill and blast, with ore and waste rock being shovelled and transported by a fleet of mobile equipment. Waste rock will be trucked to a waste rock dump, and the ore will be sent to the plant for crushing, cyanide leaching, carbon-in-pulp (CIP) processing, electrowinning and then smelting in an induction furnace to produce gold bars. The proposed mining activities are generally high-impact and intrusive
