  • Develop the Moroy deposit, located approximately 600 meters south of the Bachelor mine and forming part of the Bachelor site, using the surface and underground facilities of the Bachelor site
  • Triple the capacity of the ore processing plant at the Bachelor site, mainly by replacing some of the existing equipment with more modern and efficient equipment
  • Improve the conditions of the existing Barry-Bachelor transportation road and build a new access of approximately 1,2 km south of the Bachelor complex to reach to existing road
  • Transport the ore from the Barry site to the Bachelor site for milling, using the transportation road
  • Expand the Bachelor complex to accommodate new ore piles from the Barry site and allow for better distribution of storage
  • Expand the Bachelor tailings ponds to contains 8 millions of tons of tailings generated by the mining of ore from the Barry and Bachelor sites
