Gekko provide tailored solutions for efficient recovery of high-value metals from polymetallic compounds.
Polymetallic compounds contain a combination of different metals.
It is possible to recover and separate multiple metals from a single polymetallic ore deposit. For instance, lead, silver and zinc frequently exist in the same ore and have high, yet differing, specific gravities.
Traditionally, polymetallic compounds were separated by flotation or dense media separation processes. However, the development of continuous gravity devices, such as Gekko’s InLine Pressure Jig, employs gravity separation to recover metal compounds from polymetallic ores in a cost-effective manner.
