Supporting WIM Resource’s Avonbank pilot plant

Posted by on in Blog

The Mineral Technologies team has been assisting WIM Resource to complete the Avonbank mineral sands pilot plant test work in Dooen, Australia.

Mineral Technologies delivered a modular plant which incorporated MD spirals and associated facilities, and assisted with assembly and commissioning services.

Alex de Andrade, General Manager, Metallurgy, Equipment and Technology said it was a great effort from the Mineral Technologies team, with most of the onsite work completed during the busy November and December period.

“Our project delivery team including metallurgists, engineers, manufacturing and logistics specialists delivered a process solution for the Avonbank test pit project that has subsequently helped WIM Resource confirm the separation of heavy minerals from their ore.

We look forward to continuing to assist WIM Resource as the project moves to final development”, he said.

Local publisher The Weekly Advertiser featured a news story about the project which included a video of the pilot plant in operation. Click here to view the story.
