Canada’s G Mining Services will provide engineering and project development services for Reunion Gold Corporation and its Oko West gold project in Guyana and is aiming to deliver a preliminary economic assessment by the end of this year.
Reunion plans to post a maiden mineral resource estimate for the Kairuni zone at Oko West by mid- 2023. It expects to engage G Mining to do more advanced work on the project if the PEA stacks up.
“There is no engineering firm that has the mine building experience in the Guiana Shield and in tropical environments that G Mining Services has,” Reunion CEO Rick Howes said.
“Louis Gignac and G Mining have a successful track record of designing, building and/or operating such mines as the Omai gold mine and Omai Bauxite in Guyana, Gross Rosebel and Merian in Suriname, Fruta del Norte in Ecuador, and currently Tocantinzinho in Brazil.
“These projects were consistently delivered on schedule and on or under budget and successfully ramped up to full production. They have over 15 years of experience in Guyana and their team is well regarded in the country and globally.”
