The award of this scope to Reminex enables the completion of the entire Project Basic Engineering. Reminex has also partnered with the Canadian engineering firm BBA to add a further level of due diligence on design assurance, operational readiness, and risk management. This configuration allows the company to design the project infrastructures in compliance with Moroccan requirements whilst also benefitting from the additional experience of an internationally renowned partner. Further to this, the company intends to engage into a long-term technical partnership of its own to undertake similar functions during the upcoming EPCM phase.
The scope of works included covers the following packages:
- Package 1: Water supply solution to mine site.
- Package 2: Power supply solution to mine site.
- Package 3: Mine site access including highway junction.
- Package 4: Mine site infrastructure.
- Package 5: Portal & access declines.
- Package 6: Tailings Storage Facility.
Graham Clarke, CEO, commented: "The award of the balance of the Basic Engineering comes as a result of a thorough competitive tender process executed by the Project team and enables us to continue towards full EPCM commencement during the year of 2022.
"Reminex has extensive experience accrued over decades of operating within the Moroccan mining sector. Its substantial expertise will be vital for adapting our Khemisset Project to the local standards and for the provision of advice and assistance in the remaining permitting and due diligence processes alongside Basic Engineering.
"2022 will be a transformative year for the Company as we execute the final workstreams towards construction. We are expecting to make progress concurrently on drilling activities, Basic Engineering, discussions with other potential equity and lending banks, preparations for EPCM execution and finalisation of permitting activities. The Emmerson team look forward to working closely with Reminex to build long-term benefits for the kingdom of Morocco."
