COVID delays from China cause minimal impact on operations
The shipment will be dispatched upon the lifting of quarantine in Bolivia, which is anticipated to occur by the 20th of April 2021. The strategic alignment of these two events will allow staff to return to the Bolivia mine site, giving them 39 to 45 days to effectively outfit the property in preparation for the shipment's arrival.
The provisions will include the pouring of concrete slabs, which will house the machinery, the installation of electrical components, and the procurement of any necessary tooling and supplies.
This equipment was specifically designed and built to accommodate mass balance pull and the treatment of Bolivia Graphite based on the results of our pilot testing programs and is necessary to fulfill the projected 20,000 tonnes per annum operating capacity of the processing facility.
The List of Equipment from China includes the following:
- Hydro Cyclone Cluster
- 10 m Electrical Dryer
- 600 mm conveyor belt
- Filter press
- Slurry pumps and lines
We appreciate the patience and understanding of our valued shareholders during this delay. COVID-19 has caused a global disruption for many businesses, and it is expected to continue to disrupt for the time being, and Global Tech has shared a statement on this unfortunate issue.
"This time will be effectively utilized to complete important activities, such as finalizing engineering reports and project timelines to present investors with an accurate assessment regarding the completion of the facility and the mine's final steps into full production." - Charlton Holmes, CEO
