Client: Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb

Proposed DPMT Tsumeb Smelter Expansion Project

Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb (DPMT) is proposing to expand its current Tsumeb Smelter in order to increase the copper concentrate throughput capacity from 240 000 tons per annum (tpa) to 370 000 tpa. All the required new smelter and infrastructure components would be constructed within the current smelter footprint. DPMT appointed SLR Environmental Consulting (Namibia) (Pty) Ltd to undertake the required Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) Amendment process for the proposed project.
