Largo Provides Operational Update - Maracás on track for Q1 Commissioning

  • Significant Progress on Mechanical and Electrical Construction Activities
  • Kiln Rollers on Site and Kiln Erection on track for Q1 Commissioning
  • Crushing System Commissioning Successful and Ongoing

TORONTO, Nov. 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Largo Resources Ltd. ("Largo" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the following operational update for its Maracás Vanadium Project in Bahia, Brazil (the "Project").

Electrical-mechanical erection at the Project, which includes the installation of equipment and structures, continues on track for expected commissioning in the first quarter of 2014 (see pictures 1-8).

A summary of recent developments is listed below.

Highlights of Ongoing Development:

  • Mine

    Pre-stripping of the Gulçari "A" open pit is proceeding as planned with the first bench at the 300 level and the main pit access ramp well underway. First loads of ore have been delivered into the crushing plant.

     

  • Utilities

    The electrical power line was completed in October (as announced on October 21) and electrical substations at the project have been commissioned.

    The water treatment plant is complete and has been commissioned. The steam boiler and its stack have been installed while associated pipe work and auxiliary equipment installation continues.

     

  • Crushing and Beneficiation (see photos 1-3)

    Full commissioning of the crushing system commenced in October (see press release October 3, 2013) and is continuing on track. A crushed ore stock pile of around 25,000 tonnes is planned.

    Construction and erection of the steel structure and conveyors for the beneficiation plant has concluded.  Pipework on the slurry lines for the ball mill, magnetic separators and belt filters is well advanced.

    Commissioning of portions of the beneficiation plant has started and concentrate will be produced and stockpiled during December and will be ready for kiln commissioning.

     

  • Kiln (see photos 4 - 6)

    Construction of the steel structures for the kiln feed, kiln discharge platforms as well as for the electrostatic precipitator has concluded.

    All the remaining rollers for the kiln and cooler arrived at site in early November and have been installed on their piers. The rollers are now fully aligned and grouted.

    Ground assembly of the kiln and cooler shells is well advanced with the installation of refractory anchors clips and live rings progressing well.

    The first section of the cooler was lifted into place today (see photo 6) and the remaining cooler and kiln sections are expected to be resting on the piers by the end of December.

     

  • Leaching (see picture 7)

    Installation of the quench and scrubber system and stack has progressed very well. The belt filter has been installed and connections to the vacuum system are in progress. The metallic conveyor which conveys cooler discharge to the quench vessel is partially installed and progressing.

     

  • Desilication

    All the previously completed tanks required for the desilication process are now fitted with agitators. Only pipe work remains to be completed in this area.

     

  • Evaporator (Salt Recovery Plant)

    The main components of the evaporator (i.e. the crystallizer, fans, heat exchanger ducting and pumps) have all been installed and the plant is physically close to completion. Work is continuing on small piping and instrumentation. Vendor technical staff are on site guiding the contractor with the installation

     

  • AMV Precipitation

    The tanks and thickener are both complete.  The ammonium sulfate storage silo is being constructed on site and progressing well. The belt filter installation is complete and awaiting connection to the vacuum system. The conveyor transporting belt filter product to the flash dryer has been completed.

     

  • Flash Dryer, Deammoniator and Fusion Furnace (see picture 8)

    The flash dryer installation nears completion with only final alignment and electrical and instrumentation still required.

    The deammoniator is installed with the discharge screw feeding fusion furnace attached.

    Refractory lining of the fusion furnace base will commence this week.

    The flaking wheel is installed in place and installation of the metal conveyor conveying flake from the wheel to the storage and weighing facility is progressing well.

    The product storage silo has been completed, and the bag filling and weighing equipment is installed and awaiting electrical connection.

    The product handling and final product storage building is complete. Roofing of this building will commence this week.

     

  • Auxiliary/Administrative Areas

    The mechanical workshop has advanced well and is expected to be completed by mid-December.

    The change house is now complete and suitable for use.
