The benefits of accessing real time onstream gold data has been proven with the trial installation of the CSIRO-Gekko OLGA partnership at Evolution’s Mt Carlton operation, converting into a sale and permanent installation.
The combination of recent technology innovations by CSIRO (OLGA) and Curtin University (Carbon Scout) are delivering for the first time the capability to monitor and subsequently control and automate gold real time in your process plant.
A sensor to detect gold on-line while a processing plant is running opens up a real-time window for operators to monitor their product quality and capture value from going to waste. ADAM COURTENAY reports Field trials for the CSIRO-developed Online Gold Analyser...
Any gold loss in solution impacts your bottom line. Manual sampling also continues to pose unnecessary risk to operators by exposing them to hazardous materials.
Following on from the successful 2017 partnership with Curtin University to commercialise the Carbon Scout technology, Gekko is very pleased to announce that AngloGold Ashanti Australia Ltd (AGAA) has signed the contract for a second Carbon Scout unit for its Sunrise Dam site. This follows the successful installation of the initial unit at Sunrise Dam and a unit at the Tropicana gold mine.
Gekko and CSIRO are partnering to commercialise a new technology that provides real-time analysis for gold content in a slurry or solution stream. Delivering an updated sub-parts per million (ppm) Au measurement every 10 minutes, the OnLine Gold Analyser (OLGA)...
Collaboration continues to drive mining innovation. Following on from the sponsorship of the AMIRA P420 project in 2001, Gekko has maintained an ongoing relationship with Curtin University’s Gold Group.
December 2017 saw the successful commissioning of the turnkey gravity circuit installation (gravity box) at EMR Golden Grove. The circuit was designed, installed and successfully commissioned by the Gekko technical services team in close collaboration with EMR Golden Grove teams through late November and early December 2017 and in the process met a critical mine schedule which had high grade gold ore hitting the plant immediately post commissioning.
After the successful on-time delivery of two 55 tph modular Python crushing and gravity plants to TMAC Resources’ Hope Bay mine in Northern Canada in 2016/17, Gekko has progressed in developing a new 30 tph underground model.
Over the past two decades, Gekko has earned its reputation as a global leader in energy efficient process solutions. Further to offering innovative mineral processing technology, the Gekko Performance Consulting team has experienced an increasing demand for its Integrated Services beyond traditional Gekko products.
