:: Newcrest Chooses ILR

Gekko Systems’ InLine Leach Reactor continues to demonstrate its strength as the world leader in intensive leach technology with new installations contracted for mines in Western Australia, Thailand and Indonesia.

Australia’s largest listed gold mining company, Newcrest Mining has ordered InLine Leach Reactors (ILR) for its Telfer and Kencana operations, while another Aussie, Kingsgate Mining, will install the unit at its lucrative Chatree mine.

At Telfer, one of Australia’s largest gold mines, Newcrest has brought in ILR technology as part of an ongoing effort to boost overall gravity recovery.

Newcrest has contracted two ILR 4000s for the mine located 500km east of Port Hedland, Western Australia. In combination, the dual ILR 4000s will be capable of processing around 15 tonnes of concentrates per day. It’s an exciting addition to the ILR success story, which will see the ILR 4000 become part of one of Australia’s largest gravity circuits. At its Kencana Mine on Halmahera Island in Indonesia, Newcrest will install the ILR 1000.

Meanwhile in Thailand, Kingsgate Consolidated have ordered an ILR 1000 for its flagship Chatree operation, one of the world’s lowest cost and most profitable gold mines.

This takes to 17, the number of Gekko Systems ILRs sold worldwide in the last 12 months, including high profile installations for Australia’s Bendigo Mining, Breakwater Resources’ El Toqui Mine in Chile, Hothschilds’ Explorador Mine in Peru, Teck Cominco’s Pogo Mine in Alaska, the Glamis Gold Marlin Project in Guatemala and Aurizon’s Casa Barardi in Canada.
