Galaxy Processing Plant

Galane has refurbished the existing 15,000 tonne per month crush, mill and float plant. During 2019 it will upgrade the plant to 30,000 tpm by installing a new milling section, mill and doubling the capacity of the existing float plant. It will also establish a new concentrate area with two new filters presses producing over 2,500 tonnes per month.

Galane is commencing work on a scoping study to double the size of the plant again to match the potential production it could achieve from its underground operations.
