Collaboration continues to drive mining innovation. Following on from the sponsorship of the AMIRA P420 project in 2001, Gekko has maintained an ongoing relationship with Curtin University’s Gold Group.
Late in 2017 Gekko’s Metallurgical laboratory carried out 3 Stage Continuous Gravity testwork (CGR) for Curtin University on two ores; Cadia ore from New South Wales and Tropicana ore from Western Australia.
The 3 Stage CGR test determines the gold recovery from an ore by gravity concentration and simulates the performance of the Gekko InLine Pressure Jig (IPJ). The results from the 3 Stage CGR test can be used to select the size of the IPJ’s and overall design of the gravity circuit to ensure optimal gold recovery. In addition, these testworks will also contribute to the AMIRA P420 modelling of gravity recovery from different ore sources.
