HUDSON RESOURCES INC. is pleased to provide the following update on construction activities at the White Mountain anorthosite project in Greenland.
Since the Company’s last news release concerning construction activities (NR2017-10 dated June 29, 2017), Hudson has been building the foundations for the process plant and the warehouse. It has also installed the pad for the fuel farm. Since the middle of August a concrete team has been completing this work which involves pouring more than 700 cubic meters of concrete into 38 column foundation pedestals at the warehouse, 16 column foundation pedestals and the concrete slab floor at the process plant and the pad and containment wall for the fuel farm. Altogether, it is expected that more than 20,000m of rebar will be added to reinforce the foundations. Concrete work is expected to continue through the beginning of November.
Hudson also plans to erect the prefabricated truck shop building after the barge arrives in October. As well, the Company has agreed to purchase a 44-man camp which is located in Nuuk, the capital of Greenland. The plan is to mobilize it to site in October. The facility will be instrumental in providing high quality accommodation to construction and operating staff over the next several years.
By the end of the year, Hudson expects to have the wharf/barge facility completed and secured at site. All the process equipment and buildings are expected to be delivered and safely stored at site ready for erection to commence in March/April 2018. The objective is to begin plant commissioning next summer and to be shipping product to customers in the second half of 2018.
Hudson wishes to announce that prior to commencement of concrete activities, Moe Theriault joined the team as Construction Manager. Moe has over 45 year’s experience in mining and industrial projects with a focus on civil works and material handling which is a key component of the White Mountain project.
James Tuer, Hudson’s President, stated, “We are very pleased that the construction program is moving ahead on schedule with a target of plant commissioning mid 2018. The addition of Moe Theriault as our Construction Manager is an excellent addition to the team that Hudson is building in order to bring the project to production.”
