IHC Robbins is pleased to announce it has entered into a Heads of Agreement with Dome Gold Mines to conduct the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) for the Sigatoka Ironsand Project in Fiji. This update has been published by Dome Gold in their recent ASX release: Dome – IHC Strategic Relationship.
IHC Robbins is proud to support Dome Gold’s objective of becoming a major force in the Fijian mining industry. Sigatoka is a mineral sand project containing abundant heavy metals, fitting into IHC Robbins’ speciality of heavy mineral processing.
Commenting on the agreement Dome’s Chairman, Dr Garry Lowder, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to join up with IHC in this way, as they will bring to us great expertise and operational experience in sand mining and dredging. There’s really no one more qualified in this business.”
Sigatoka – Beyond the DFS
Upon the conclusion of the DFS and if the findings prove to match expectations, IHC Robbins will also be appointed as Engineering, Procurement and Construction (“EPC”) manager for the development of an iron- and industrial sand mining operation at Sigatoka.
IHC Robbins has provided a multi-discipline Engineering design and Project Management service to the Mining and Mineral Processing industries for over 25 years, ensuring both DFS and EPC stages for Dome are conducted by a team of industry experts.
It is the intention of both Dome and IHC to build a long term, strategic relationship that will benefit both companies. To this end, IHC proposes to undertake the DFS on terms significantly favorable to Dome. Assuming a successful outcome of the DFS and a decision to go ahead with development at Sigatoka, IHC would then carry out the EPC management, again on commercially competitive terms that will be attractive to Dome.
