Global Atomic Corporation has announced the signing of Development Consultants Private Ld (DCPL) of Kolkata, India, and Lycopodium Minerals Canada Ltd to commence the basic and detailed engineering, procurement and Project Management of the Dasa Mine processing plant in the Republic of Niger.

These engineering and project delivery firms were selected to form an Integrated EPCM Project Team “synthesising proven uranium processing plant design experience with West African project management and construction experience.”

DCPL will focus on the Basic and Detailed Engineering required for the design of the Dasa Process Plant, with the initial phase of Basic Engineering now underway. Lycopodium will prepare the Project Execution Plan, provide input for constructability in West Africa and provide project services during this phase with the intention of continuing on to manage plant construction.

All EPCM activity will be guided and supervised by Global Atomic Owner’s Team headed by Dr Santiago Faucher, Chief Technology Officer at Global Atomic. Global Atomic and Dr Faucher’s company, Insight R&D, have now integrated metallurgical, mechanical, and electrical engineering experts with DCPL’s team in Kolkata and Lycopodium’s team in Toronto to direct work on the Dasa Project.

Together, this Integrated EPCM Project Team will develop the detailed design and complete the project delivery, of the Dasa mine processing plant; building on proven results from the 2020 Insight R&D pilot plant trials and the findings of the 2021 Dasa Phase 1 Feasibility Study.

“DCPL and Lycopodium have excellent and extensive work histories throughout Africa including technical studies, project reviews and EPCM contracting for over 77 engineering projects in mining and other industries. Additionally, DCPL has designed and built several uranium recovery and process plants and is currently the foremost engineering company in India developing that country’s nuclear and uranium sectors. Lycopodium has been actively engaged in 60 mining projects across West Africa and brings recent hands-on project delivery experience in the region.”

Global Atomic President and CEO, Stephen G. Roman stated: “Following Global Atomic’s announcements regarding our initial off-take agreement, the formation of a banking syndicate to finance the Dasa Project and the incorporation of our Niger operating company, SOMIDA, the commencement of the EPCM phase is our next important milestone to stay on schedule to become one of the world’s newest uranium production companies. Similar to most multinational firms, who source specialised engineering from India today, Global Atomic has identified DCPL as having the world’s most compelling experience and track record in the design of uranium processing plants. DCPL’s uranium experience will reduce project technical risk, while its ability to deliver highly detailed engineered designs will reduce in-field work and enable good project cost control.”

He adds: “After an extensive selection process, DCPL and Lycopodium emerged to form the best team to undertake the EPCM phase of the Dasa Project. This Integrated EPCM Project Team is committed to completing the project on time and keeping the Dasa Project on schedule to deliver yellowcake to utilities in Q1 2025.”
