Engineering and project management firm AMEC has secured two contracts to carry out definitive feasibility studies for uranium projects in Namibia.

The work will be carried out by the firm’s minerals and metals business AMEC Minproc.

Under the first contract, AMEC Minproc has started work on Paladin Energy’s definitive feasibility study for the stage four expansion of the Langer Heinrich uranium operation.

The study is targeting an overall expanded annual production of 10Mlb and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

Under the second contract, AMEC Minproc will conduct a definitive feasibility study for Bannerman Resources’ Etango uranium project, which consists of undeveloped uranium deposits, and has a total resource of 212Mlb of uranium oxide (U3O8).

The study will focus on the development of a 5-7Mlb of uranium per annum from the open pit mining operation.
