This section undertakes bench scale and pilot plant scale metallurgical test work for process flow sheet design and optimisation.

Test work done includes:

  • Agitation and percolation leaching of metals.
  • Floatation at laboratory and pilot scale.
  • Gravity concentration using :
    • James table
    • Knelson Concentrator
    • Spirals
    • Gemini table
    • Querl Bowl
    • Jigs
    • Specific gravity determination of ore samples.
    • Magnetic separation.
