Lycopodium ADP was appointed to perform detailed design, procurement, construction reviews and provide commissioning assistance for the 20,000 tpa greenfields dry plant

In 2014 and 2015 Lycopodium ADP was engaged by the previous mine owners (Gecko Graphite) to manage a test work program and a feasibility study to update previous studies performed by others. The work involved evaluating extensive test work and subsequently scoping a 20,000 tpa graphite plant flowsheet to improve the recoveries materially from what was predicted during prior study work.
In 2016 Gecko Graphite and Imerys Graphite & Carbon, Swiss based and part of the French CAC listed Imerys Group, formed a company and undertook to convert the decommissioned Okoruso fluorspar processing plant into a graphite processing facility. Lycopodium ADP was appointed to perform detailed design, procurement, construction reviews and provide commissioning assistance for the 20,000 tpa greenfields dry plant generally comprising new dewatering, drying, size segregation and bagging facilities.
The plant at the end of 2Q17 was commissioned and in ramp up.
