Base Resources maintains mineral sand production despite falling ore quality
Published: Monday, 25 February 2019
Heavy mineral sand output from Base Resources’ Kenyan mine was maintained by an increase in the volume of ore mined, plus a draw-down of stocks to compensate for lower ore grades.
Australian miner Base Resources rapidly increased its
