Mining to restart at Omai mines
Mining is set to recommence at the Omai gold mines and machinery is currently being assembled and is scheduled to be operational this month.
The Canada-based Mahdia Gold Corp (MGC) on Wednesday said that its joint venture partner began moving mining equipment from Georgetown to Omai shortly after the beginning of 2014. “The equipment is currently being assembled and is scheduled to be operational this month. There is expected to be a short period wherein the machinery goes through its initial break-in period and operators familiarise themselves with the operating methods and new equipment,” a statement from the company said.
