:: Recovery of Gold Tellurides at Los Ingleses   (Dec.30, 2003)

An extensive test program was undertaken with a Los Ingleses Mine in South America for the recovery of free gold and the associated refractory gold tellurides. Testwork was initially carried out using the Falcon SB4, which can be operated in a specific manner to simulate the function of the Falcon C type concentrator.

The results that were achieved were very encouraging leading to the purchasing a Falcon C10 for their processing plant. The results that have been achieved from the C10 have been excellent with recoveries in the region of 90 - 95%, in only 30% of the feed mass.

Falcon's Sales and Marketing Manager personally commissioned the unit, Colin Sprake, who is expecting further Falcon C orders from the success of the C10. In fact, the Los Ingleses plant is considering the purchase of a Falcon C40 and C20 resulting from the excellent results obtained by the C10.
