Project Description

Tom Jones Corporation constructed a turn-key, design/build of a modular Assay Laboratory facility and a modular Metallurgical Laboratory facility located at the Rainy River NewGold mine site in northwestern Ontario.

The Assay Laboratory is approximately 365 sq m and Metallurgical Laboratory, consisting of two modules, approximately 80 sq m.  The Assay Lab is conventional wood frame construction with a slab on grade.  The MET lab is pre-fabricated, and fully equipped with building services, lab equipment and systems and assembled at the site in their respective locations.

The Assay Laboratory modules are constructed on concrete slab foundation, and the Metallurgical Laboratory placed over an elevated concrete floor located within the Process building.

The Assay Lab was designed and constructed as a stand-alone facility with peripheral mechanical HVAC units and baghouses placed on elevated steel platforms with steel stairs access, complete with air distribution and extraction ductwork, laboratory layouts with the interior room equipment layouts, functional work flows, lab equipment, including requirements for electrical, make-up air ventilation, dust ventilation, fume extraction, water, sewer, drainage, gases, waste disposal, communication, and other services.
