Kupang Smelting Hub Site Update
Gulf Manganese Corporation Limited (ASX: GMC) (“Gulf” or “the Company”) is pleased to advise that following the ground blessing ceremony held last week, the civil works land clearance program at the Kupang Smelting Hub site in the Bolok Industrial Estate has commenced.
The site clearance program is progressing well and is expected to be completed in the next week, and will be followed by detailed survey works and further construction activities such as site fencing, foundation preparations and construction of factory buildings.
The site clearing work has been managed by Gulf’s operational team, while EPCM contractor XRAM, continued to provide engineering and pyrometallurgical support.
As advised in early June, Gulf has entered a binding Land Lease Agreement with the Government of East Nusa Tenggara Province for land in the Bolok Industrial Estate in Kupang. The 23.5 Hectare block of land is directly adjacent to the Government owned Power Station and only five kilometres from the main Tenau port.
