The project, considered the largest undeveloped tin deposit in the world, is currently undergoing its DFS through the end of this year.

DRA's scope of work includes the concentrator plant design and immediate process related infrastructure and facilities, as well as all necessary services to develop the project's capital costs.

Tin One wants to implement the most advanced technologies and environmental practices for the only tin production plant in central Asia.

"DRA has an impressive studies track record, with several thousand studies completed across all commodities; the Tin One leadership team is confident that DRA will deliver a comprehensive technical and economic report, that will allow Syrymbet to progress closer to achieving full production," Tin One's Lawrence Rossouw said.

The miner said commercial mineralisation within the Syrymbet ore field consists of oxide and sulphide ore. In addition to tin, primary ore also contains over 70 other minerals.
