The Yaouré Gold Project is located in the central region of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire in West Africa, approximately 40 kilometres north-west of the country’s political capital, Yamoussoukro, and a further 270 kilometres north-west of the country’s commercial capital, Abidjan.
Scope of Work:
Development of the project commenced in May 2019, bringing together the same development teams (Perseus and Lycopodium) that successfully delivered Perseus’ Sissingué Gold Project in Côte d’Ivoire ahead of time and on budget.
Having delivered the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) and Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) for Yaouré, Lycopodium undertook the process design, detailed engineering and drafting for the process plant, water services including river abstraction and TSF pumping and decant return, steel-framed process plant buildings and 11 kV power reticulation. The scope also included supply of equipment and materials.
