Pilot plant testwork conducted at Anglo Research

26 Oct 2010 - 10:30
Bernard Oostendorp, Gaynor Yorath and David Mbuli operated the Anglo Research milling and flotation pilot plant to produce samples for Bernard's MSc thesis and the UCT research project during October 2010.

The Centre for Minerals Research has been collaborating with Anglo American Platinum and Anglo Research on Platinum Milling and Flotation research projects for many years. Initially the work was carried out as a laboratory based project on Merensky ores and later on UG2 ores. This has now moved to a pilot plant project to reproduce the initial laboratory results and to provide samples for further mineralogical investigation.
