:: Austpac Announces New Waste Plant  

Australian mineral technology company Austpac Resources has announced that a 2.5 tonnes per hour plant utilising Austpac's low temperature roasting technology will be built.

Austpac Managing Director Michael Turbott said he is not at liberty to disclose which Australasian based company will be building the plant. Turbott said Austpacs technology fits the unnamed companies need for a technology to enhance the recovery of minerals from mine waste.

Austpac's low temperature roasting technology involves low temperature fluid bed roasting to selectively enhance the magnetic properties of specific minerals. Low temperature roasting test work at Austpac's pilot plant in Newcastle has shown that minerals now being lost as waste can be recovered and conditioned for use. The low temperature roasting plant comprises a series of fluid bed roasters and magnetic separators. Austpac will be involved in the design, procurement, construction, commissioning and operation of the facility expected to be operational by the end of this calendar year.
