The international engineering and project management consultancy, Lycopodium Minerals has entrusted EERI BF, the Ortec Group Burkinabe branch specialised in industrial works, with two construction works contracts. EERI BF had to provide tank and dry plant process erection for a gold mine in Kongoussi, 80 km on the North of Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, belonging to Bissa Group.
The contracts included erection of:
- 17 process tanks, including six 3000m3 CIL (Cyanide in Leach), all tanks were also fabricated by EERI BF in their Bobo Dioulasso workshop
- the main crusher structure and mechanical equipment
- 4 conveyors of a total length of 400m
- the stockpile reclaim area
The client had very important requirements concerning: Quality, Health, Safety and Environment, Quality Assurance and Quality Control, document control, schedule and methods. Not only did EERI BF respond to these requirements providing high quality profit-making performance within the relevant time-frame and safely, but it even managed to finish mounting the CIL tanks one month earlier than expected.
Thanks to this achievement, EERI BF has strengthened its position as a provider of construction works in the mining field in Burkina Faso and its region.
