Trigon Metals has recorded its first flotation of copper concentrate a the Kombat processing plant in Namibia.
The mine restarted in October.
Trigon has now nearly completed the refurbishing of the power plant. The primary crusher is fully operational, grinding is running in batches, and Trigon is testing flotation.
The company is installing the filter press for drying final concentrate for sale. First concentrate will be produced by year-end.
All long lead items for the processing plant have arrived at the mill for installation.
Trigon expects Kombat to produce 4,000 tonnes of copper in concentrate in 2022.
