:: Falcon Goes Silver  

Recovery of Native silver has become as popular as the recovery of free gold from milling circuits using Falcon's successful SB technology. Falcon's endeavor into the silver industry started some two years ago with the sale of a Falcon SB21 to the El Pilon Mine in Mexico. The installation proved to be a major success for the mine and they have now added a Falcon SB38 to the circuit. Unfortunately we are unable to give the grades and recoveries from this circuit but, one thing for sure is that Falcon is recovering in excess of 50% of the silver that is produced by the mine.

Subsequent to these units running in Mexico, Falcon received a purchase order for a SB21 from the Munni Munni Silver Mine in Western Australia. The machine has yet to be finally commissioned so no data is available.
