Mineral Technologies delivered a fully integrated mineral processing solution for Kenmare’s Moma plant. The solution used as much of the existing Beenup plants process equipment as possible, and incorporated a floating wet plant and mineral separator plant. Bulk materials tests determined the optimum equipment (including existing process equipment) and flowsheet for efficient processing of the deposit.

Smart Engineering

A process guarantee was offered on grade and recovery based on benchmarking plant versus laboratory results.

A design team of 55 engineers and drafters worked over a period of 13 months on basic and detailed design.

Existing spirals, electrostatic and magnetic separators were refurbished and supplemented with new, additional process equipment.

Project Highlights

  • Laboratory scale testing
  • Mineral Technologies delivered fully integrated processing solution
  • Successful re-design for a greenfield site
  • Bulk material testing done
  • Production of final ilmenite on grade
