Galaxy awards key Mt Cattlin contract

Development of Galaxy Resources' Mt Cattlin lithium project is ramping up with the emerging producer awarding a key contract to the DRA Pacific, Mintrex and BEC Engineering joint venture.

 

The announcement is below:

 

Emerging lithium producer, Galaxy Resources Limited (ASX: GXY) today announced it has awarded the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) contract for its minerals processing plant at Mt Cattlin in Ravensthorpe to the DRA Pacific, Mintrex, BEC Engineering Joint Venture (DMB JV).

The EPCM contract includes construction of a crusher and concentrator process plant at Ravensthorpe capable of producing 137,000 tonnes of spodumene concentrate per year.

Both Mintrex and DRA Pacific have strong track records in the field of mineral processing, and project delivery, stretching over the past 25 years. Mintrex has specialist strengths in crushing and materials handling, while DRA has significant capability in the processing and concentrating of most ores via Dense Medium Separation (DMS), Gravity and Mill Concentrators.

The Joint Venture will utilise the strengths of BEC Engineering for the electrical and instrumentation design and construction management.

Galaxy has authorised the DMBJV to commence the early detailed engineering design and procurement phase.

Managing Director, Iggy Tan said that the Company is confident in the DMB JV's ability to successfully deliver the minerals processing plant for the Mt Cattlin lithium project.

"We are pleased to have DRA Pacific, Mintrex and BEC Engineering involved in the construction of the Mt Cattlin processing plant," said Mr Tan.

"Their combined knowledge and experience in developing successful minerals processing projects make them idealcandidates to construct the project.

"The award of the EPCM contract moves the Mt Cattlin project firmly into development phase and on track to achieve first production of spodumene concentrate by Q3 2010."
