ProjectRomplumb
LocationBaia Mare, Romania
Tonnage350 - 400,000 mt
ProductsCopper Concentrate, Copper Matte (sulphide) , Dross

Project Description

Perimeter 1 & 2 contain varying contents of elements with Perimeter one totalling approximately 250-300,000 metric tonnes and Perimeter 2 containing approximately 80-100,000 metric tonnes respectively.

The main activity on site will be the excavation of stockpiles, conducted with the aim of recoverable materials via gravimetric techniques. The main phase of the technological process is sorting the material excavated from other materials through the shaking tables and concentrating the valuable-contained metals in big bags to dispatch for transport and sales.

Operations

Processing Plant

  • Terra Resources has developed a robust process for the recovery of copper concentrate with precious metal by-products at our processing plant
  • Method involves milling and gravitational separation
  • Due to its efficiency and relatively low cost it is the most well-proven and accepted technique of concentrating metals
  • Current capacity isĀ  approximately 8 mt of input on a wet process as well as approximately 16 of input on a dry process
  • Total capacity: Approx. 150 m/t per month
  • Terra Resources is aiming to expand and modernise the plant to increase productive capacity and improve recovery rates

Warehouse

  • Our fully-owned 10,000 m2 warehousing facility contains our primary processing plant.
  • The warehousing facility also serves as the first stage of the supply chain where material is transported to our bonded warehouse in Antwerp.
  • Serves as a storage unit and logistics hub for our concentrates ready for shipment to our customers worldwide
  • Negotiating additional warehousing space directly attached to our own warehouse

History

The Romplumb plant was established in 1844 after the centralization of all the small local smelters that carried out their activity by processing concentrates in open flame furnaces.

The main activity performed by Romplumb Corporation was obtaining decopperised lead by pyrometallurgically processing lead-cuprous concentrates.
