Pokrovskiy is the licence on which the Group was built. Today, as it nears the end of its mine life having produced 2.01Moz since 1999, the mine will transition into the POX Hub, currently under full scale production. The POX Hub is an integral part of the Group’s future plans and Pokrovskiy provides the ideal strategic location, not only due to its excellent onsite and regional infrastructure, but also its close proximity to Pioneer’s limestone deposit, limestone being a key ingredient for the pressure oxidation process.
Deposit type: Hard rock with non refractory ore.
Mining: Open pit.
Processing: RIP plant and seasonal heap leach facility on site – to be transformed into POX Hub.
Development history: Acquired in 1994 and developed into an operational mine in house. Commissioned heap leach facility in 1999 and RIP plant in 2002.
Reserves and resources: 1.39Moz
