:: IsamillsTM to Process Magnetite
Xstrata Technology’s IsaMillsTM have been selected for the new magnetite processing circuit being developed at Xstrata Copper’s Ernest Henry Mine in Queensland, Australia. The new circuit is part of the planned upgrade at the minesite as it transforms its mining operations from open pit to underground mining.
John Twomey, Manager - Magnetite Project Xstrata Copper said that Xstrata Technology will be providing a M10,000 IsaMill™ package to the Ernest Henry site, which includes the IsaMillTM (powered by a 3MW motor), as well as feed and discharge pumpboxes, steel work and media addition system. The Installation of the mill at the site is planned for the first half of 2011.
The project is one of several being worked on by Xstrata Technology including the supply of two M3000 IsaMills™ for Xstrata Copper’s Antapaccay copper project in Peru, and three M1000 IsaMillsTM forming part of the regrind circuit for molybdenum processing at Thompson Creek Metals’ Endako project in North West Canada. There are almost 90 IsaMillsTM installed world wide.
