Another first for Gekko Systems is the recent installation of a gravity plant for REO LLC in Mongolia, the country’s only gold mining company with an underground operation.  The plant comprises an InLine Pressure Jig (IPJ) 2400, a cleaner IPJ1500, two InLine Spinners (ISP30) and a gold room to cater for the high-grade alluvial deposit at REO’s Khuush Mine located in Bayankhongor Province.

Gekko’s ability to deliver and install a fully operational plant in a fraction of the time required for conventional process plants has won high praise from REO.  Commissioning was completed early 2013 by members of Gekko’s Technical ServicesTeam. A unique feature of the plant is the surrounding infrastructure which is a fully-heated building and includes heated process water storage to combat the extreme cold of winter. These features allow the Khuush Mine to operate year-round.  

REO spokesman, Ganbat Tseveenregzen said, “Gekko was chosen simply because we wanted to buy the best gravity gold plant available”.

Gekko is pleased to be working with REO on this project and looks forward to contributing to REO’s further mining plans in Mongolia.
