Scotland mining recently took a step forward with the successful installation and commission of a pilot plant APT engineered and built for Scotgold Resources Limited, a mine located near the picturesque Scottish village of Tyndrum. Although small, the plant marks a significant milestone for the company in that actual production is envisaged. The plant was built by APT South Africa in a record time of just four weeks and even more remarkable was that assembly on site and commissioning through to operation was achieved in just two days. “This project was of significant importance to both APT and our client”, said Business Development exec Gary McFarlane who participated on site himself. “We are acutely aware, as are our clients, of the difficulty in raising capital for project funding and the demonstration of actual production even at small scale should greatly assist the process”, he said. APT produces a range of standard small plants suitable for rapid implementation for either piloting or actual production from high-grade ore bodies.
“APT is proud to have been of service to Scotgold Resources and wishes the company every success”, said McFarlane.
