As previously announced, in November 2020, Jubilee commenced the construction of an additional 80 000 tonnes per month of chrome ore processing facility which on completion will increase Jubilee’s overall processing capacity to 250 000 tonnes of chrome ore and tailings per month.
The facility consists of four integrated chrome recovery circuits to maximise chrome efficiencies which includes Jubilee’s Fine Chrome operation. The final stage of the plant commissioning to reach full design capacity has commenced which includes the full integration into the feed system of the existing Inyoni PGM Operations.
The scheduled down time of the Inyoni PGM Operations to facilitate this integration and commissioning is carefully planned and the Company remains on target to reach its targeted record production of more than 50 000 PGM ounces for the year. In addition, the construction of the expanded Inyoni PGM Operations is well underway targeting to increase its processing capacity by 45 % to 75 000 tonnes per month. The Company targets to commence commissioning of the expanded operation at Inyoni by the end of July 2021.
