Organic Growth & Expansion Projects


The expansion of the Asanko Gold Mine consists of two discrete growth projects, Project 5 Million and Project 10 Million. Project 5 Million consists of two modules, the upgrade of the existing carbon-in-leach (“CIL”) processing plant from a design of 3 million tonnes per annum (“Mtpa”) to 5Mtpa and the development of the Esaase pit and the overland conveyor. Project 10 Million is the construction of a second replica 5Mtpa CIL plant to double processing capacity to a total of 10Mtpa, with a commensurate increase in mining operations.

A DFS on Asanko’s expansion projects was published on Monday 5 June, 2017, available here

Following Board approval in Q4 2016, the plant upgrades are underway and are expected to be fully commissioned by Q4 2017.
