FYI Resources is pleased to announce the appointment of GR Engineering Services (GRES) as the engineering study manager to progress the FYI’s high purity alumina (HPA) project.
GRES’s appointment is to refine the proprietary HPA flowsheet with preliminary economic parameters.
The scope of works will be to a Pre-feasibility Study (PFS) standard for a processing facility supporting a treatment capacity of 120,000 tonnes a year of kaolin ore for feed to a specially designed beneficiation and refining plant to produce up to approximately 10,000 tonnes a year of HPA.
The engineering study will dovetail into the enhanced metallurgical studies currently being undertaken for FYI’s HPA strategy.
FYI Managing Director, Mr Roland Hill said “FYI is progressing its stated HPA strategy rapidly and in-line with the project development timeline”, state FYI Managing Director, Mr Roland Hill.
“The appointment of GRES as the engineering manager is a positive addition to the study team and will result in not only the delivery of a first-class engineering component to the PFS, but also in a world class HPA project.”
