IT IS not often a firm can make it through to 25 years. To do so with many of the staff that started the journey is even more noteworthy.

Newmont Mining's Ahafo gold mine in West Ghana has a special place in Lycopodium hearts.

Noel Dyson

For Lycopodium managing director Peter De Leo it was a 2004 mining project in a new gold belt in Ghana that was the point when he felt the firm hit the big time.

The firm secured the engineering, procurement and construction management contract for the 7.5 million tonne per annum gold processing plant at Newmont Mining's Ahafo gold project in Africa in 2003, started construction in 2004. First gold was delivered in 2006.

To commemorate the occasion Australia's Mining Monthly has published a supplement looking at the 25 years of Lycopodium.
