With work to upgrade the Driefontein 4 tailings storage facility (TSF) now complete, DRDGOLD is on track to achieve planned throughput of 500 000tpm from Phase 1 of its Far West Gold Recoveries operation in the first half of calendar 2019. The upgraded TSF will receive tailings from the Driefontein 2 plant, which has been refurbished to retreat material reclaimed from the Driefontein 5 dump. Development of Phase 1 began in August last year and first commissioning began just four months later, in December.
