TORONTO, June 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Largo Resources Ltd. ("Largo" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an operational update on its Maracás Vanadium Project in Bahia, Brazil.

Civil and electrical-mechanical construction at the Maracás Vanadium Project is progressing well. At present, the project remains on schedule and within budget for commissioning at the end of the Fourth Quarter, 2013 (see pictures 1-5).

A full summary of recent developments is listed below:

Items Completed Since April 30, 2013:

  • Mechanical erection of the electrical switchyard and main substation is complete and pre-commissioning has also been concluded. Final commissioning of these areas will occur upon completion of the 86km power line which is presently in progress.
  • Erection of the crushers and conveyors is complete. Pre-commissioning of the crushing circuit will commence soon.
  • Construction of the cafeteria building and sewage treatment plant is finished.
  • Construction of the medical center has been completed.  The center can now function on an operational basis.
  • The chloride tailings pond earthworks are complete with installation of the liner to commence shortly.

Highlights of Ongoing Development:

  • The foundation for the ball mill has been completed and the bearings which will support the mill are currently being installed.
  • Installation of the concrete bases for the magnetic separation unit is complete. The steel structures for the magnetic separation unit, concentrate filter and cyclones are in progress.
  • Tanks for the tailings thickener are nearing completion.
  • The heavy shells, light shells and live rings for the kiln and the cooler have been shipped from China and are presently en route to the port of Salvador, Brazil.
  • Six of the 10 rollers for the kiln and cooler have now been fabricated and are scheduled for shipping by the end of June. The balance of 4 rollers, expected to be shipped in July, required additional work before shipment, which is already in progress.
  • Equipment imported from South Africa, including the deammoniator and the sodium sulphate crystallizer, has arrived in port in Brazil and will be transported to the Maracás site after clearance with local authorities.
  • Construction of the water treatment plant is expected to be ready for commissioning by early August.
  • At present, construction of the 86km power line is progressing with approximately 50% left to be completed.

Overview of Site Development and Critical Path Items:

Significant progress has been made in all areas at the project site. Several areas are now complete with specific locations and equipment entering the pre-commissioning or commissioning stages according to their intended schedules. Fabrication of the majority of international equipment has concluded with shipments either anticipated in the near-term or already underway.

Fabrication of the majority of the items associated with the 90 meter kiln and 34 meter cooler is now complete, including all the heavy and light shells and six of the ten rollers. Many of the completed items are presently in transit to Brazil.  Much of the remainder is expected to be shipped in June according to schedule. Due to problems during the fabrication process in China, four of the additional rollers required recasting.  As a result, they will be delivered later than the other six. Although the kiln's erection schedule has now been revised as a result, Largo continues to remain on track for commissioning of the project by the end of Q4 2013, provided revised shipment dates are adhered to. It is important to note that the costs associated with the recasting have been assumed by the supplier.

The electrical power line is likewise proceeding with approximately fifty-percent of the construction completed to date. Of the total of eighty-six km of the power line, only fifteen percent (13 km) remains subject to settlement with affected land owners. Management expects to reach settlements by the end of June. In the event agreements cannot be reached with these landowners, the state power agency and Largo have been issued a "right-of-way" for access to the remaining land. A final approval from the judge involved in the process is expected in the near-term. Largo believes the resolution will be rendered within sufficient time to complete the power line so that it can be commissioned and used for the pre-commissioning of the plant.

The bulk of the equipment imported from the Republic of South Africa, including the deamoniator and the sodium sulphate crystallizer, has already arrived in Brazil and will shortly be transported, within schedule, to the project site, with the civil work related to the erection of that equipment already nearing completion.

Tim Mann , Chief Operating Officer of Largo, stated: "Our team has done an exceptional job of monitoring our minute-to-minute progress and responding to and managing potential issues in order to keep us in line with our year-end target. I believe this is largely due to the fact that we have an extremely experienced team of engineers on the ground who have built and operated many projects over the years, who have analyzed potential unforeseen events and who have built contingencies into the construction timeframes." He continued, "I congratulate our team for overcoming the inevitable and unpredictable hurdles associated with these types of projects that we have encountered to date and for working aggressively to sustain the rapid pace of forward development which presently keeps us on track to commission in the Fourth Quarter of this year."
