Aim-listed Premier African Minerals has completed the installation of the RHA ball mill at its Zulu lithium and tantalum project, in Zimbabwe.

This includes all necessary feeds and discharge components, pumps, control circuitry and grinding media requirements that are expected to support planned production of up to 1 000 t a month of spodumene from November at the project, says CEO George Roach.

The commissioning phase is now planned to begin from Thursday, with first material expected to be fed through the mill on Monday.

Openpit mining operations at Zulu are expected to resume next week and while there is already substantial material on the run-of-mine pad, it remains critical that the plant has sufficient ore for current processing, Roach emphasises.

Operations at Zulu had been temporarily suspended to allow for the installation and commissioning of the mill from RHA Tungsten, the company reported in August.

It also noted that the planned relocation of the RHA mill to Zulu was an interim mitigation step.

Further updates will follow in Premier’s unaudited interim results for the six months ended June 30 which will be published on September 29.
