Bonasika Bauxite Project

Americas, Guyana, South America
The Bonasika mine, located near Georgetown in Guyana, utilises conventional open-pit mining methods to recover ore which will first be crushed, washed, screened and stockpiled at the mine site before being hauled to the Sand Hills port approximately 21 kilometres away from the deposits.

At the Sand Hills port, the ore is further reduced in size, screened and stored in coarse and fine stockpiles before being reclaimed and loaded onto ships for direct shipment to customers.

Lycopodium’s scope of work was for the provision of engineering and detailed design for a 0.35 Mtpa plant, including:

  • Mining infrastructure compromising a camp, services and utilities including power generation, crushing, washing and screening systems, radial stackers and tailings.
  • At the port, a materials handling facility compromising a camp, services and utilities including power generation, bulk earthworks, various buildings, and materials handling system including truck unloading, secondary crushing, screening, tripper conveyor to stockpiles, reclaim and wharf-mounted ship loading system.

The project scope included:

  • Detailed engineering and drafting services for the process plant, on-site infrastructure, and port facility.
  • Technical procurement support with the preparation of specifications and datasheets for equipment tender documentation within Lycopodium’s battery limit.
  • Vendor technical data and information management and review.
