Northern Minerals launches recruitment drive for Browns Range mine in WA


Posted by Monica Gameng

Works are progressing well on Northern MineralsBrowns Range heavy rare earths project in Western Australia’s East Kimberley region, with the installation of a pilot plant already underway.

The construction of the pilot plant at Browns Range is on track for completion by the end of June 2018.

Northern Minerals has also launched a recruitment drive in hopes to fill out the remainder of the positions for its Browns Range operations team.

“Despite heavy rains in the area over the last two weeks causing some delays on site, (contractor) Primero Group continued to make steady progress on installation of structural and process plant modules.

“The operations team continues with operational readiness work, progressing development of the commissioning plan, operations systems and procurement of key supply contracts. The recruitment drive for the remainder of the operations team is under way,” Northern Minerals said in a statement.

The company has previously raised approximately $10 million through a share purchase plan in order to develop the Browns Range project. Northern Minerals is accelerating its plans that will be fast-tracking the enhancements on the project, which includes downstream processing options as well as an increase in exploration activities. With these initiatives, Northern Minerals is hoping to extend the mine life of Browns Range from 11 years to 20 years.

Planning for the next drilling programs at Browns Range is underway and Northern Minerals is expecting to commence this work by mid-2018.
