The mine site is located at Ada Tepe hill, approximately 3km south of the town of Krumovgrad in south-eastern Bulgaria. It is an open-pit mining operation comprising of a process plant, which employs conventional crushing, grinding and flotation processing for gold extraction, and the disposal of thickened tailings, together with mine rock waste, in an integrated mine waste facility (“IMWF”).
The plant is designed to treat up to a maximum of 840,000 tonnes of ore per annum over an eight-year mine life. Two (2) main styles of mineralization are recognised at Ada Tepe: Wall zone occurring within shallow north dipping zone of brecciated vein material and variably silicified sedimentary breccia; and Upper zone predominantly occurring within east-west striking, steep dipping veins.
