In 2014, the Mission South WCP began operation right on schedule. Mineral Technologies’ involvement spanned over 2 years starting with early confirmatory metallurgical testing to development of process flow sheets and preparation of early prefeasibility studies. During the construction phase, Mineral Technologies provided onsite process engineering support to assist with assembly and installation of equipment as well as site support during start-up of key process equipment.

Smart Engineering

In 2012 Mineral Technologies was appointed to design the WCP. A dedicated design team of engineers and drafters from Mineral Technologies’ Australian and US operations were assembled to prepare basic and detailed design for the WCP as well as critical separation equipment including an 8m diameter Surge Bin.

Latest Technology

The WCP incorporates state-of-the-art spiral technology specifically designed by Mineral Technologies for fine mineral separation. The MG12 spirals deliver high recoveries even with finer valuable heavy mineral sizes. The WCP also includes a fit for purpose, custom built Surge Bin to meet SII’s specific process needs.

Today Mission South is a leading example of excellence in mineral sands separation, and through smart design and innovative technology is expected to provide many years of high value service.

Highlights

  • First Large-Scale use of New MG12 Spiral Technology
  • Successful ‘Scale Up’ from Metallurgical Testing to Production
  • Novel Design of a Floating WCP on Remote Greenfield Sit
