2008 Arrium* engaged Mineral Technologies to deliver fine iron ore beneficiation solutions for two tailings plants. The challenge was to beneficiate low-grade ore from a nominal 50% Fe to an Fe content of 64%.
The project required end-to-end solutions to be delivered for both plants.
- Extensive metallurgical testwork identified optimal beneficiation flowsheets for the variable low-grade ore.
- Utilisation of latest technologies and clever plant design enabled beneficiation from 50%Fe to 64% Fe content.
- Modular plant designs enabled faster construction compared to conventional methods.
- Metallurgical testing
- Flowsheet development
- Basic and detailed plant design
- Process equipment supply
- Plant commissioning
- Operator training
- EPC contract
- Process guarantee
*Arrium is now Simic Mining
