Kula Gold has appointed contracting group Arccon as an engineering design consultant to assist with feasibility and infrastructure studies for its Woodlark Island gold project, off the coast of Papua New Guinea.
Arccon will help revise Kula’s processing plant and site infrastructure design and capital cost estimates to assist in the optimization of a feasibility study for the mine.
Arccon, which is a subsidiary of the Allmine Group, has also expressed interest in providing engineering, procurement and construction services for Woodlark Island, Kula said in a statement.
The feasibility study for Woodlark Island is due to be completed in the third quarter of this year.
A turnkey EPC contract will be offered at that time, Kula said.
