Montreal-based miner Semafo reported on Thursday that construction of the Burkina Faso-based Boungou mine, in Burkina Faso, is 91% complete, and 10% of the equipment has already been commissioned. Commissioning exercises started in February, focusing first on the crushing circuit equipment and water services. The reclaim and grinding circuits, reagent and oxygen plants are also undergoing testing. Wet commissioning started at the end of March, with the corporation pumping water from the water storage facility to the raw water tanks for the processing plant.
