Finders Resources announced in mid-June that it has plated and stripped the first copper at the recently commissioned, 25,000-metric-ton-per-year (mt/y) copper cathode solvent extraction/electrowinning (SX-EW) plant at its Wetar copper project on Wetar Island, Indonesia. Production from the new plant will add to production of an already-operating, 3,000-mt/y SX/EW plant at the project, increasing project capacity to 28,000 mt/y of cathode copper. Mine life is estimated at 10.5 years.
