Our clients and partners say
We acquired an updated stand-alone XRT plant and within a very short space of time recovered the 91O ct D-colour Lesotho Legend diamond at Letšeng. This must surely rank as one of the best ROIs that has ever been seen!

Large-scale Greenfield plant
STARK Resources has designed and built large-scale Greenfield pilot plants in remote bush or outback with little access to infrastructure or a specialised workforce for many clients over the past 10 years.
The advantages of building a
The beauty of our modular pilot plant approach is that the team can start by installing the minimum necessary components and then add further modules as necessary. This helps limit costs for the client - a key consideration as most exploratory miners are constrained by financing.
Outlay of circa US$40 million, on a fixed-cost basis
Expedited build time, in as little as nine months
Revenue generating from the first day of handover
Enjoy a rapid payback time of capital expenditure
Demonstrate the economic viability of the deposit faster than the traditional routes
Benefit from state-of-the-art technology prowess not available elsewhere
We train and support local workers through knowledge transfer
Recovery techniques on a modular basis
A project size below $50 million is often too little to make clients a priority at larger developers, but STARK specialises in targeting smaller assets with an orebody that lends itself to recovery techniques on a modular basis.
Get revenue up and running!
Smaller or mid-tier companies can’t always go down the expensive and lengthy route of developing a pre-feasibility study, a definitive feasibility study, and other considerations that come before finally setting up a processing plant.
Instead, get revenue up and running after some initial mineral characterisation, while also providing the opportunity to learn more about their deposit and make it more attractive for further financing. It all starts with a flowsheet – STARK’s overall personalised in-depth guide to achieve customised project success.
A complete turnkey solution
Our complete turnkey solution is perfect for operations which have completed a scoping study, or perhaps have started initial work on a Pre-Feasibility Study. These plants are usually funded by an offtake or Joint Venture partner, with a multi-year plan to develop the deposit over time in place.
The Zulu Project, Zimbabwe
STARK is the primary contractor of the Zulu Lithium Project in Zimbabwe, where the exceptionally complex orebody is on the verge of being converted into high quality spodumene concentrate. We are targeting 4,000 tons of concentrate production per month by the end of 2023, having optimised the plant through the installation of a hydro sizer and additional UV sorters that complement the X-ray transmission (XRT) waste sorters already installed. This exceptionally complex project is now on the verge of first production after some delays mid-year caused by the complexity of the orebody alongside border delays.
We are always at your service.
