The project would process 14.4 million tonnes of ore per annum over an open pit life of 19 years, yielding approximately 59,500 oz of gold and 13,375 tonnes of copper per year.[4]

In 2021, environmental groups announced that they had acquired land in the development area, which would likely make it impossible to develop the mine.[2]
