MEI Online: Gravity Concentration: Latest News: September 12th 2003


:: Bajo Alumbrera Purchases Falcon SB5200SE  

Falcon Concentrators Inc. is very pleased to announce that after a trial period, the Model SB5200SE installed in Alumbrera’s third grinding line has now been purchased. This is Alumbrera’s second Falcon Concentrator. Since establishing contact with this Mine in 2001, Falcon has won 100% of Alumbrera’s concentrator business.

When informed of the decision to purchase, Steve McAlister, the founder of Falcon Concentrators Inc. said: “At Falcon, we know what a big risk it is for any milling operation to be first to try a new machine of any size, let alone one that is capable of handling 400 t/h solids. My hat is off to Vince Garner and his Alumbrera team for their support and confidence during the trial period. Thanks to their foresight, Alumbrera is now operating the world’s largest enhanced gravity concentrator.

The success of the SB5200 is also a testament to the quality of Falcon’s Engineering and manufacturing capabilities. Right now, there are six SB5200’s destined for Australia moving nicely through the assembly as well as orders for Africa, Asia and Canada.
