The timeline is that:

  • Long lead-time equipment will be ordered immediately the holding company's board approval is granted and funding has been raised;
  • On completion of the shaft's dewatering, re-commissioning of the shafts and surface infrastructure construction will start simultaneously;
  • The main and ventilation shafts will be deepened to their final depths of 2,340 metres and development to access ore reserves will be completed;
  • The metallurgical plant will be constructed in time to process ore from underground mining.
