US Nickel is purchasing a ball mill to begin construction of a 500,000t-per-annum gold processing plant at the Bullant mine project near Kalgoorlie, Australia.

The purchase includes associated drives and pumps located north of Leonora, Australia.

The company is awaiting shareholder approval and settlement of the Bullant mine acquisition, which is expected next month.

Preliminary investigations have commenced to determine the site for the mill’s location.
