:: Sedgman Signs EPC Contract for Boseto Copper Project

Leading resource sector services company Sedgman Limited has secured a contract to Engineer, Procure and Construct (EPC) a new processing plant for Discovery Metals Limited’s flagship Boseto Copper Project in Botswana.

The project lies 80 km south west of the town of Maun in Botswana’s north west and is being delivered by Sedgman Limited under a contract signed between Sedgman South Africa (Pty) Ltd and Discovery Metals’ Botswana subsidiary Discovery Copper Botswana (Proprietary) Limited.

Sedgman’s initial scope of works under the contract includes Front End Engineering Design (FEED) and related metallurgical testing for the copper flotation plant. Subject to DML’s approval, the scope of works will then be expanded to include detailed design, procurement and construction of the plant and associated infrastructure, including the borefield development. The total estimated value of all works is approximately USD$85 million.

The conventional copper flotation plant is being designed with a rated throughput of up to 3 million tonnes per annum to accommodate the planned project expansion from open cut to underground operations.

Construction is scheduled to commence later this year and be completed by late 2011.
