:: Jameson Cells Selected for Another South American Copper Mine


Glencore Technology is pleased to announce the second Jameson Cell project to be installed in South America in the last 6 months. This installation will see two Jameson Cells producing copper concentrates for First Quantum Minerals’ Cobre Panama mine in Panama.

Glencore Technology Jameson Cell Manager Virginia Lawson said the Jameson Cells will be operating in parallel with two flotation columns in the copper cleaning circuit.

“The cells will be producing final grade concentrate, with the tails being treated by conventional cells. The flexibility in the cell design has allowed for the cells to be sited on pre-existing flotation column foundations. The cells come supplied with wash water systems, which enables final grade concentrate to be produced” she said.

“The Jameson Cells for this project are our J4500/12 model; they are rather compact, and this has allowed for them to fit easily into the existing plant design”.


Glencore Technology General Manager Paul Telford said there has been a renewed interest for energy efficient flotation and grinding technology which can be fitted into existing plants, as well as new installations, resulting in high levels of enquiries for Jameson Cells as well as IsaMills™.

Jameson Cells are currently being installed at McArthur River for zinc cleaning duties, as well as being constructed for the Collahuisi mine in Chile. An IsaMill™ is also being installed in an African copper operation as well.
