Building on work completed in earlier papers, the current paper presents a techno-economic evaluation of two recently demonstrated technologies for treatment of arsenic containing refractory gold concentrates. Using defined project parameters and inputs, the authors compare capital and operating cost estimates for pressure oxidation (POx), and the Albion ProcessTM. The paper incorporates data now publicly available from the Albion ProcessTM plant, at the GeoProMining Gold (GPM Gold) project in Armenia since 2014 as well as recent POx circuits.
