Gavin Fletcher, Senior Metallurgist - Afrika Mashariki Gold Mines, Tanzania
"The testwork for our operation suggested that a gravity circuit was not required due to the lack of free gold in the deposit. Thankfully the final design included an XD30 and gravity recovery is in the order of 6-10%. The free gold is very fine and subsequent tabling is very inefficient. Recent testwork of the ACACIA reactor suggests we will be able to double our gravity gold production, improve security in the gold room and also improve the health and safety of the gold room by alleviating the need for smelting of "dirty" gravity concentrates."
