Project Summary
The GPM Gold Operation is owned by GeoProMining LLC and consists of the Zod open cut mine near the Azerbaijan border and a processing plant at Ararat near the Turkish border. The gold bearing ore, mined at the GPM mine, is transported to the Ararat Process Plant via a state owned rail link.


Xstrata Technology was awarded the contract for the supply of an Albion Process™ to improve gold recovery and the refurbishment of existing facilities to treat 1,000,000 tonnes of ore per annum from a current throughput of 500,000 tonnes. EPMS was awarded the refurbishment engineering contract for the flotation plant, tailings and reagents areas.
