:: Xstrata Technology's Milestone in Armenia


Xstrata Technology, the Brisbane, Australia-based supplier of equipment for mineral processing, smelting and refining, has announced that the latest Albion Process plant has reached a milestone at the GPM gold project in Armenia, with the erection of the oxidative leaching circuit. The plant, owned by GeoProMining Gold LLC, is designed to produce 128,000 oz of gold annually from refractory ore. Xstrata Technology is supplying all plant and equipment for the project."

The Albion Process is a combination of ultrafine grinding and oxidative leaching at atmospheric pressure. The feed to the Albion Process is base or precious metal concentrates. The sulphides in the feed are oxidized and liberated, allowing the desirable metals to be recovered by conventional means. The Armenian plant is the fourth Albion Process installation worldwide; the others are in Spain, Germany and the Dominican Republic. The Albion Process was developed in 1994 by Xstrata PLC."
