The Sinclair Nickel Project includes extensive new-near infrastructure including an existing open-cut and underground mine, an on-site 300,000tpa Concentrator, sealed airstrip and +200-person accommodation village.

The process plant and mine were placed on care and maintenance in August 2013 and have been maintained to a very high standard.

Key infrastructure associated with the Sinclair Nickel Project includes:

  • Open pit, decline and underground mine;
  • Processing, crushing and screening plant;
  • Nickel concentrate plant;
  • Run-of-Mine (“ROM”) pad;
  • Waste dump and topsoil stockpiles;
  • Tailings storage facility;
  • 200-person accommodation village and facilities; 
  • Administration buildings;
  • Fully-equipped maintenance and stores warehouse;
  • Core yard and exploration offices;
  • Borefield and pipelines;
  • Mining contractor facilities;
  • Reverse osmosis plant and potable water pipelines; and
  • Waste-water treatment plant.

The availability of this extensive, high quality infrastructure package represents a significant strategic advantage to Talisman as, subject to exploration success and the prevailing global nickel price, it provides optionality to potentially fast-track a future production pathway.
