Alphamin Resources has purchased a second IPJ2400 for tin recovery at the Bisie Tin Project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This is the result of excellent performance by the first IPJ installed at this site in 2018 (the pictured IPJ gravity box).
The Bisie Tin project is being developed in three phases. The first phase focuses on developing the Mpama North region. Mpama North is producing approximately 10,000 tonnes contained tin per annum. Its life of mine is currently 12.5 years.
Exceptional improvements to mine operating costs, process efficiencies and recoveries are achieved by pre-concentrating deposits using the IPJ. Gangue rejection enriches the valuable mineral product into a smaller volume for efficient downstream processing.
The efficient circular IPJ design delivers 20% less power, and consumes only 10% of water required by traditional jigs. Furthermore the low separating velocity within the unit maximises recovery of fine mineral particles. Saving water and reducing energy helps mine operations lower their environmental impact and remain profitable.
Plans are currently on the way to purchase a third unit for the Bisie Tin project.
