The Yetwene Project will treat an average of 125 m3/h of ore, around 385,560 m3 in the first year. A process that follows the following chains:
- Grain size separation;
- densimetric separation;
- Diamond concentration by X-Ray;
- Diamond chipping.
For the second year, an average of 219 m3/h of ore is estimated to be treated, around 1,135,296 m3/year. Approximately USD 4,000,000.00 (four million US dollars) was invested in the "Lavaria" (PT MB 100, DMS 50 THP and Double Stage flow sort Machine).
As part of the expansion of the project, we intend to increase the capacity of production in the second year, with the start-up of the third MB150 treatment plant, by reinvesting approximately USD 7,000,000.00 (seven million US dollars), from the net sales proceeds of the first year's production. It is estimated that production will increase to up to 24,000 carats/month.
As a sine "qua non premise" for the operation and development of the Company, investments were made in necessary infrastructure, namely:
- access ways;
- recreation and sports rooms;
- between others.
to guarantee the whole exercise of activities and achieve the recommended results.
The investments mentioned above in infrastructure are valued at approximately USD 6,000,000.00 (six million US dollars).
