The Phu Kham Copper-Gold Operation is PanAust’s flagship operation

The Operation is located within PanAust’s Phu Bia Mining Contract Area in Laos approximately 140 kilometres north of Laos’ capital city, Vientiane.

The Operation

The Operation comprises an open-pit mine feeding ore to a conventional milling and flotation operation which produces a copper and precious metals concentrate for export to customer smelters mainly in Asia.

Seventy per cent of Phu Kham’s concentrate is trucked in covered containers to the port of Hon La in Vietnam (approximately 650 kilometres from the Operation). The remaining 30 per cent is trucked to Sriracha Harbour in southern Thailand (approximately 1,000 kilometres from Phu Kham) for export to smelters mainly in Asia.
