V.M.Salgaocar - Beneficiation Plant

The Medium/low grade Run of Mine is pre-screened dry at 75mm. The +75mm fraction is crushed to -75mm by in-line jaw crushers and the product is then mixed with the -75mm fraction.

This is then wet scrubbed in Rotary Drum Scrubbers and continuously discharged into the double deck linear motion wet vibrating screens, separating the products as +10,-75 mm as the washed Lumpy fraction and the -10mm fraction, which then enters the Spiral classifier.

The classifier rake-up forms one part of the Fines product. Overflow of the Classifier is passed through two stage Hydro Cyclones and the underflow of the secondary Cyclone is collected after passing through the De-watering Classifier.

V.M.Salgaocar - Beneficiation ProcessThe Primary Cyclones overflow is passed through 5" Mozley Cyclones. The underflow is collected in a pond as Mozley Cyclone product and the overflow gravitates to a Thickener to recover around 60% of process water. The thickened tailing is then discharged into a tailing pond as waste.

The +150 mm lumps, separated at the feed hopper grizzly, are sent to the Mobile Jaw Crusher or Mobile Impact Crusher for crushing.
