The Blackjack processing facility is a conventional Carbon in Pulp (CIP) plant. It has recently been refurbished and modernised.
The Plant is located within 8 kms of Charters Towers with easy access to all major infrastructure including road links, rail, airport, grid electricity, water, housing and a ready workforce.
The plant is fully permitted and was last operated in 2020. It has the capacity to process ~ 340 Kt per annum. This can be increased through capital investment in select plant and equipment identified in completed process design study.
It is the only plant in the immediate Charters Towers region with capacity to process small parcels of high-grade ore.
