The scope of work included the following:

  • Expansions to existing Administration buildings.
  • Expansions to existing Light and Heavy Vehicle Workshops.
  • New overhead powerline from powerstation and electrical distribution to the underground development.
  • Magnet and metal detector addition to existing conveyor circuits.
  • Services to the Underground (air, service water, firewater, potable water, HV).
  • Underground dewatering.
  • Pit dewatering.
  • Primary and secondary escapeways.

Subsequent to the design phase of the project, CPC has been awarded the Structural, Mechanical and Piping (SMP) underground construction works.
