Robex Resources has appointed Met-Chem Canada to develop a mine plan for the feasibility of the Nampala project in Mali, Western Africa.

Met-Chem will develop an open pit concept for the project along with defining the mineable reserve.

The firm will also select and estimate the cost for equipment and moving of materials that are to be added to the feasibility study.

Robex is currently completing drilling in the northern extension to increase the resource of the deposit.

Canadian engineering company Bumigeme will direct the main feasibility study for the project to exploit an open pit mine and milling-cyanide operation at a rate of 5,000t a day.
