Initial indications from last week suggested that a restart of the system could be addressed with the removal of densified slurry within the thickener, however, further inspection over the weekend found structural damage to the torque cage. The repairs to the torque cage are expected to start on December 24. Management estimates that the processing plant will restart prior to year-end. It is expected that the processing plant will resume operation at approximately 50,000 tonnes per day (tpd). With all five crushers and SAG mills having been relined in a planned shutdown in the first half of December 2013, no major planned down-time is expected in the first quarter of 2014.
