Gold Fields Ltd has awarded Simulus Engineers the contract to expand the St Ives Gold Mine heap leach project by 1 Mt/a. The expansion is the result of previous Simulus Engineers scoping and feasibility studies focused on increasing the heap leach throughput and recovery to improve the project economics. The upgrade is focused on increasing the reliability and uptime for the plant, with surge points added and high downtime items replaced.
