About this Project
Managed by Mongold, the Naran Mandal site, previously known as Tsagaan Tsakhir, Project King, and Special Mines, is an actively producing, high-grade, narrow-vein gold mine located in Bayankhongor, Mongolia. Naran Mandal mine site is actively being mined at Vein One, though the current reported JORC Resource is defined between Vein One and Vein Ten, with a total of ten economically-mineable veins. After considerable geological modeling and due diligence by an independent third-party, development on Vein Ten will begin in 2019, followed by exploration works on other veins.
Sepor was engaged to design and build a 300TPD Merrill Crowe plant to be skid mounted and delivered to Mongolia in the 4th quarter of 2019, when the new lab begins operations. Sepor designed the plant, the filtration and feed systems and incorporated its new modular skid system, that allows the pilot plant to be airfreighted.
