:: SGS Canada Partners With Ecomin

 

SGS Canada Inc. has announced a partnership agreement with Italian-based Ecomin S.r.l, strengthening its metallurgical testing capabilities for the North American mining and recycling industries.

The agreement between SGS Canada and Ecomin provisions the installation of a pilot TriFlo® separator at SGS Canada’s lab and testing facility in Lakefield, Ontario. Through this move, SGS Canada becomes the sole provider of this testing method in the country, employing two-stage dense medium separation technology.

The TriFlo® technology has been deployed with proven success in Europe and beyond, bringing advancements to critical processes in mining and recycling. Its dense medium separator provides up to three adjustable density separations in a single vessel, allowing for enhanced extraction and accuracy with large volume test samples. Organizations carrying out feasibility studies at the onset of a mining or recycling project could greatly benefit from this form of advanced testing, since it strengthens decision-making with respect to determining the potential of recovery at a specific site.

Although SGS Canada is the leading supplier of dense medium separation testing in Canada, it has serviced its clients employing single-stage technology. “This partnership allows SGS Canada and Ecomin to combine their single and multi-stage dense medium separation expertise in the testing of “difficult to separate” materials or samples,” said Lawrence Ng, VP of SGS Canada’s Minerals division. “We are excited about the prospect of offering private and public sector organizations in North America advanced metallurgical testing methods that have brought benefits to organizations in other parts of the world.”
