An update on the Drakelands tungsten-tin mine

Charlie Northfield of Wolf Minerals has emailed to tell me that commissioning of the Drakelands process plant continued throughout July and into August (see also posting of 25th June). The primary, secondary and scavenger DMS circuits were successfully commissioned. The primary and concentrate regrind mills were also started up. Commissioning of the pre-concentrate refinery commenced with tests on the flotation cells, filter, dryer and reduction kiln. The month also saw the successful completion of 200 working days without a lost time incident (LTI). The official opening of the UK's newest metal mine is on September 17th.

Earlier this month Wolf employees and contractors enjoyed another good sundowner in the warm sunny weather at the Miners’ Arms, Hemerdon.
