Primarily the refractory ore is processed by conventional flotation on site, the concentrate produced is then shipped to third-party off-takers or to Amursk POX plant where gold dore bars are produced using pressure oxidation and cyanidation technologies.
Chaun district of the Chukotka Autonomous Territory in north-eastern Russia.
The deposit is accessible all year round via 187 km of improved unpaved road from the town of Pevek which is a major seaport operating from July to early November.
