:: WHIMS Delivers Improved Iron Ore Grade in Goa

Mineral Technologies recently commissioned a complete Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separation (WHIMS) plant solution for one of Goa’s oldest Iron Ore producers, VG Quenim.

Early in 2010, VG Quenim contacted Mineral Technologies regarding provision of a total process improvement solution. Initial discussions were followed by a visit by VG Quenim executives to Mineral Technologies’ Australian head office which included testing of the ‘Reading’ WHIMS technology to demonstrate its ability to upgrade low grade iron ores.

The visit resulted in an order and subsequent commissioning for two 16- pole wide rotor ‘Reading’ WHIMS units to process and upgrade a stream of -1mm iron ore material.

As lower-grade sources of iron ore become a more substantial proportion of the deposits found in Goa, the ‘Reading’ WHIMS technology is delivering a compelling alternative for upgrading iron ore fine products to more attractive price levels.

VG Quenim is now achieving the targeted beneficiation which is attracting a higher sell price for the low grade iron ores and increased profitability.
