Liberia: Hummingbird positive on hydro project

Issue 308 - 25 Sep 2015 | 1 minute read

UK gold miner Hummingbird Resources has reported positive results from a preliminary version of a prefeasibility study carried out by Knight Piésold into the possibility of developing a hydroelectric power plant to supply its Dugbe gold mine project (AE 298/12). The study looked at four different configurations for the power plant, ranging between 15MW and 30MW, using intake from the Dugbe and Botou rivers and Geebo creek. Although the mine was originally expected to have a total demand of 30MW, this has been revised down to 16MW, allowing potential for supplying the grid should one of the larger power plants be selected.
