The seven leach tanks were fabricated for Atlantic Gold by a company called Modular Fabrication in nearby Miramichi, New Brunswick. “Instead of taking three to four weeks to install them, it took about four or five days,” she said, “because it was all pre-fabricated and they just needed to be snapped on and filled.”
Modular used the same approach with the crushing circuit.
The same approach was used for the crushing circuit, which was designed by Metso but fabricated in Miramichi. This not only cut installation time down to a month but will also make it possible to move primary crushing equipment to the Beaver Dam site when Touquoy is depleted. The jaw crusher and grizzly feeder will be relocated to Beaver Dam; the ore will then be trucked 37 kilometres to the Touquoy mill for secondary crushing.
One thing to note…while the crushing equipment was Metso’s (and bought by Modular Fabrication), the rest of the crushing circuit―the structures, conveyors, stockpile building, etc.―were all designed, manufactured, and installed by Modular Fabrication.
