In January 2013, gold producer Nord Gold N.V. (Nordgold) announced the commencement of production at its Bissa Mine in Burkina Faso. The project, completed on time and on budget, delivered to Nord Gold its second operating asset in Burkina Faso, a landlocked country to the north of Ghana, West Africa.
Scope of Work:
Lycopodium delivered detailed design, procurement, construction management and commissioning services for this greenfield gold carbon-in-leach plant and associated infrastructure. It was the first complete EPCM project undertaken by Lycopodium in Burkina Faso and provided valuable local knowledge for future endeavours in that country.
