The Enterprise Project design was developed in parallel with the Sentinel project. The nickel ore is mined at the Enterprise deposit, approximately 20kms from the Sentinel plant where a separate nickel processing facility has been constructed. This comprises separate crushing, a SAG and Ball Milling circuit and flotation cells together with a dedicated concentrate handling facility.
The plant is designed for an annual throughput of about 4 million tonnes of ore. The Enterprise plant is located adjacent to the Sentinel plant and is designed to be able to process additional copper ore as part of Sentinel when it is not being used to process nickel ore.
Enterprise will share all the Sentinel infrastructure and the tailings storage facility.
