:: InLine Leach Reactor Footprint Grows to 90 Installations

Demand for the InLine Leach Reactor (ILR) has continued to show strong growth with 90 units being sold since the first commercial installation in 1999. Incredibly, even the prototype unit remains in operation at Bendigo’s Henty operation in Tasmania, Australia.

The ILR’s global leadership position reflects the unit’s technical design advantage and Gekko’s highly skilled technical team, who are leaders in advanced research in the area of intensive leach technology for gold and silver concentrates. The benefits of the ILR’s unique drum-based design include higher recoveries of both fine and coarse gold. Gekko’s product development team, led by Nick Katsikaros, has continued to optimise chemistry and operation to the point where reagent consumption (CN) has been reduced significantly. High levels of automation, autonomous operation, good data output and high security are benefits enjoyed by Gekko’s ILR customers.

17 ILR units have been ordered or installed in the last 12 months.
