Mineral Technologies has received a second large order to supply wash water spiral assemblies to ArcelorMittal's Mont Wright Iron Ore mine in Canada. The order follows receipt of the largest Iron Ore spiral order in Mineral Technologies history for 5,760 spiral starts in 2010 to replace the GEC spiral assemblies which had been in operation at Mont Wright for the past 30 years.
Arrium engaged Mineral Technologies’ expertise from concept through design and execution. Awarded the EPC contract in 2010 for the Iron Duke plant, Mineral Technologies and its parent Downer delivered the construction phase. Based on Mineral Technologies’ extensive testwork on the project, the total solution also included a process guarantee which significantly reduced project risk for Arrium. Due to the success of the Iron Baron project, Mineral Technologies was engaged to deliver a complete solution including testwork, design, delivery and commissioning for the new Iron Duke spiral processing plant which was completed in 2013.
The project is a two-stage spiral plant for beneficiation of fine iron ore -1.0mm to 0.075mm at a feed rate of 205 t/h. The scope required Mineral Technologies to conduct onsite testwork and to evaluate the capability of spirals for the beneficiation of fine iron ore. On acceptance of the testwork results Mineral Technologies was selected as the preferred supplier of separation equipment and an EPCM contract.
With a focus on selecting a state of the art solution for a new Iron Ore beneficiation plant, one of India’s largest steelmakers, Bhushan Power & Steel, researched the market and selected MD spirals. The market research included extensive metallurgical testing across a wide range of fine gravity spirals and visits to Iron Ore beneficiation plants worldwide to confirm product quality and reliability.
The project was commissioned in January 2013 following extensive test work on site during 2010–2011; the MD WW6+ wash water spiral was selected for its proven metallurgical results and ‘operator friendly’ ease-of-use.
Located 220km from Broken Hill, the Ginkog Mine was the first commercial mining operation in the Murray Basin. It contains 5.8Mt of heavy mineral, with an excellent suite of products including Zircon. Mineral Technologies delivered a fully integrated solution starting with initial testing of the deposit to determine optimum processing methods and flowsheet design through to design of the wet processing plant, plant construction, supply of processing equipment, and commissioning and operator training of the Cristal site team.
Having successfully completed the Ginkgo concentrator plant for Cristal in 2006, Mineral Technologies was once again engaged at Cristal’s new Snapper mine to deliver a total technology package. The engineering team combined detailed plant design experience and expertise with the latest 3D software to deliver a highly specialized plant design for Snapper.
The Kelsey Centrifugal Jig (KCJ) is enabling Exxaro's Namakwa Sands Secondary Concentration Plant (SCP) in South Africa to efficiently recover zircon minerals from stockpiled tailings material.
Mineral Technologies’ work totalled 8000 man hours across various disciplines for design and construction support. Successful commissioning of a two-stage spiral circuit totalling 216 twin start spiral separators was completed in 2006 achieving both concentrate grade and production capacity.
Design, supply and commissioning of mineral processing plants. Mineral Technologies completed ore body evaluation, metallurgical testwork, feasibility studies and complete process and engineering design followed by onsite supervision during the construction phase, and overseeing installation of the supplied equipment. Mineral processing equipment was commissioned by Mineral Technologies teams to ensure optimal performance.
To support the recent installation of a new AG Mill, The Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOC) has installed an additional two lines of spiral separators. The new order comprises of 144 single start 7-turn WW6E roughers, 96 single start 5-turn WW6 cleaners and 96 single start 5-turn re-cleaners.
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.
Mineral Technologies located a team on site to provide coordination and technical support for the procurement, construction and commissioning of the plant upgrades. Our teams worked closely with local contractors and Mineração Taboca to ensure the plant was delivered as designed. New spiral technology included Mineral Technologies high capacity HC1 R/S spirals and HC1 spirals which were assembled in Brazil.
Starting in 2001, Mineral Technologies conducted the first metallurgical testing of 100 tonne bulk samples. Over the years this expanded into further testing resulting in the development of process flow sheets to deliver optimum separation of Zircon and Ilmenite. Given proven expertise in fine separation and considered metallurgical knowledge of the ore body, Mineral Deposits engaged Mineral Technologies to design the WCP which would become the world’s largest Mineral Sands Spiral Plant. In addition, Mineral Technologies was engaged to design specific process equipment including a 7,000tph Surge Bin and Tails Densification Modules.
The Nuclear Materials Authority of Egypt (NMA) engaged Mineral Technologies in a wide ranging scope of work to review the 6 volumes of Pre-Feasibility Study that had been completed by the NMA and to validate the results.
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.
Mineral Technologies delivered a fully integrated solution to Trimex Sands Pvt Ltd which began with testwork in 2004 and progressed to flowsheet and basic plant design in 2006. Plant design incorporated wet and dry processing stages. Mineral Technologies supplied state of the art spiral, magnetic and electrostatic technology from its proprietary range of process equipment; and engineered equipment, including a large grizzly screen hopper and trommel, to meet specific process needs.
