Ravensthorpe leach circuit restarts

First Quantum Minerals has announced that the atmospheric leach circuit at its Ravensthorpe nickel operation in Western Australia has started recommissioning after being shut down due to a tank failure in December 2014.

Steady-state production is expected by July 31, at which point the circuit should operate at 50% of production capacity, with throughput of 80t/h, First Quantum said.
