The Pilgangoora Lithium Project, located 100 km south of Port Hedland, is an open pit mining operation with a processing capacity of 1.54 Mtpa and an estimated life of approximately 14 years. The tailings storage facility (TSF) has been designed for a capacity of 0.72 Mtpa for a total tailings capacity of 10.08 Mt. The process plant was commissioned in Q2 2018.
Knight Piésold has been involved in the project since 2016 from the initial design through to construction/commissioning. Knight Piésold’s involvement has continued to post-construction with the provision of assistance to site operations staff and is involved in the design of the first TSF raise.
