Lydian International Limited (“Lydian” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that major equipment components have arrived at its 100%-owned Amulsar Gold Project in Armenia.

Howard Stevenson, Lydian’s President and CEO, commented, “Equipment lead times and delivery logistics present unique challenges for many projects. We are very pleased that our vendors are meeting fabrication schedules and deliveries to site are being well managed.”

Major pieces of equipment for the crushing plant, including the jaw crusher, a secondary cone crusher, rock breaker, pan feeders, and screen liners have all arrived at site. The material handling system includes crushing and screening equipment and the overland conveyor, all supplied by Sandvik. Components have been shipping since Q2 2017 as fabrication is completed.  Modular steel structures for the overland conveyer and other structural steel components are arriving on site and this will continue throughout Q3 2017.

Caterpillar remains on schedule in manufacturing the primary mine mobile equipment. The first phase of equipment, consisting of a 6040 hydraulic shovel, one CAT 994 front end loader, five 789D haul trucks and other equipment, was shipped in July 2017. Deliveries to Amulsar and assembly are expected over the balance of Q3 2017.

The gold recovery plant is being fabricated in South Africa by Azmet. Pre-assembled modules have been loaded for shipment later this month. Delivery is expected by late Q3 2017.

ABB is suppling all major site-wide electrical and control systems. Fabrication of the main substation and distribution grid, integrated automation and process control by optimized solutions, motors and drive systems is advancing in accordance with the manufacturer’s planned delivery schedules. Electrical transformers are scheduled for shipment this month, with delivery anticipated during Q4 2017.
