Red Rock Resources, an exploration and mining company, has submitted an application for a mining lease covering the Macalder Tailings Reprocessing Project (MTRP) in south west Kenya.
The tailings - ground rock and process effluents that are generated in a mine processing plant - include 1.3m tonnes of Joint Ore Reserves Committee measured resource at a grade of 1.65g per tonne gold.
As part of the application the firm is currently completing an environmental impact assessment (EIA), which includes community consultations to gauge the opinions, concerns, and expectations of those affected by the MTRP. The EIA is expected to be completed later this year.
Red Rock Chairman Andrew Bell said: "The submission of our first mining lease application in Kenya is an important milestone and demonstrates the progress that is being made. We look forward to engaging with the local community and all stakeholders in order to take the project forward to construction and commissioning."
