Savannah Resources Plc said Dec. 7 that the Mutamba Consortium has completed the commissioning of a pilot processing plant at the mineral sands project in Mozambique.
The 20 tonne-per-hour plant will be used to produce concentrates as part of the prefeasibility study for Mutamba, which began earlier this year.
The construction of the pilot plant for its bulk metallurgical test work program began in mid-August.
The consortium operates the Mutamba project through a joint venture 51% owned by Savannah and 49% by Rio Tinto.
Savannah kicked off the first phase of the pre-feasibility study into the potential development of the Mutamba project in August.
