Thanks to the visitors who joined us at our trade stand at Electra Mining in Johannesburg last week. Attracting thousands of visitors, Electra Mining proved once again why it is one of the largest mining events in Africa.
As one of 800 exhibitors, Mineral Technologies took the opportunity to showcase new technologies and mineral processing solutions.
Launched at Exposibram late last year and showcased in the USA, Brasil and Australia over recent months, the CT Separator was on display. It gathered a lot of attention with visitors keen to learn more about its revolutionary modular design, small footprint and ability to operate more simplified concentrator plants that are capable of higher overall metallurgical performance. For more information visit our news story and brochure.
Our Regional Operations Manager Equipment and Technology, Edwin Phiri reported that there was also a lot of interest in the low cut-point LC3 coal spiral. Visitors were already aware of the LC3’s superior performance in the processing of fine coal and wanted to know more about local testing and installations in Southern Africa. Edwin and the team demonstrated local test results and are now working with a large number of interested visitors, keen to identify opportunities for LC3 applications to improve their respective coal operations.
Edwin also reported that a good number of visitors showed interest in turnkey projects to process fine Chrome from stockpiles. Mineral Technologies has led the way in this sector with proven delivery of chrome recovery modular plants in Southern Africa. The team is now providing interested visitors with more information including visits to specific Chrome sites to research and identify opportunities.
Many visitors were interested to learn more about how we are using Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separators (WHIMS) to beneficiate fine iron ore. Edwin reported that a number of discussions are now taking place with local Iron Ore producers to evaluate the potential of WHIMS in their Iron Ore operations.
In summary, we enjoyed the opportunity to meet with new and existing customers at Electra Mining. Thanks again to our visitors for your interest.
