TORONTO, Oct. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Largo Resources Ltd. ("Largo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the installation of the main power line to the Company's Maracás Vanadium Project ("the Project") in Bahia Brazil has concluded. The 11 megawatt, 86 kilometer electrical power line is now connected to the national grid and is supplying power for Project operations.
With main power line installation now complete, full commissioning of the crushing system will commence shortly. Likewise, testing and pre-commissioning of other completed system areas can now begin.
Mark Brennan, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "This is an extremely exciting milestone for the Project. With power in place we can now begin the commissioning process. Most system areas of the plant are complete or nearing completion and will be commissioned and operational prior to the end of the year, including the crushing and milling systems."
He continued "It is important to highlight the fact that we will be commissioning the majority of system areas at the Project well ahead of full commissioning of the plant (which will commence upon the expected completion of the kiln in Q1, 2014). We believe this will provide us with a useful cushion to our initial ramp-up schedule and an ability to better address potential operational flaws well prior to lighting the kiln and beginning production."
Additionally, Largo announces the completion and successful commissioning of the Project's water treatment plant.
