Sunlabob completes energy efficiency baseline study on Phu Bia mining

In June 2010, Sunlabob completed an energy efficiency baseline study for the process facilities on Phu Bia Mining Limited’s Phu Kham copper gold mine.

Based on the plant's energy consumption data collected over a 6 month observation period from 1 October 2009 to 31 March 2010, the aim of the study was to present a baseline analysis of the plant's average electricity consumption, as a first step to become more energy efficient in the future. The study also suggested a number of tailored energy conservation measures to increase the energy efficiency of the existing electrical power system.

Furthermore, Phu Bia Mining Limited has also requested Sunlabob to conduct a more in depth energy audit of its camp site and office buildings in August 2010.
