A 440 kilo Volt Ampere Cummins generator and associated power distribution lines have been completed, powering both wet and dry test runs of the ball mill.
 
Mining and screening of feed material is underway with a stockpile being readied for milling and processing.
 
Niuminco managing director Tracey Lake said that with the power and electrical infrastructure upgrade to the mill and processing plant complete the company was looking forward to increased and reliable processing capacity.
 
The Edie Creek site lacked mains power for most of 2017 and had its main back-up site generator break down in March/April, slowing and disrupting processing operations.
