Up to 1400 t/h Separation Capacity for Iron Ore Mines

Continuous R&D has resulted in further improvements in wet high-intensity magnetic separation with allmineral’s gaustec technology. According to allmineral, with a throughput capacity of up to 1400  t/h, the new gaustec-GHX is particularly efficient at processing low-grade iron ore into marketable high-grade pellet feed fines.

Although low-grade iron ore mines will benefit from the new technology develop by allmineral, the main focus is on reclaiming low-grade iron ore tailings.

The manufacturer says that there would be many factors make the gaustec-GHX an innovative solution, including easy maintenance, low energy consumption, small plant layout, and high throughput. Although low-grade iron ore mines will benefit from the new technology, the main focus is on reclaiming low-grade iron ore tailings.

Based on the new technology, construction of a processing plant for iron ore tailings with a 45 % Fe grade began at the Itaminas Mine in Brazil end of 2012. The plant went into operation mid2013 with a feed capacity of 480  t/h and three processing stages (rougher, cleaner and re-cleaner) in a single unit at 2.5  mm matrix gap. The quality of the pellet feed product reaches 65 % Fe with an average tailings grade of 35 %, approx. equivalent to a 30 % plant yield.
