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.
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.
