Sustainable Mining Solutions for Diamond Processing
We supply a range of equipment that can be applied in diamond mining operations and these plants will typically include the following processing phases:
- Primary screening
- Fines removal & management
- Primary water treatment
- Tailings waste management
The Diamond Mining Process
The diamond mining process begins with the screening of your raw feed material to remove the minus 6mm fraction while the 6mm to 100mm material is delivered to the scrubbing phase. This material is then subjected to severe scrubbing & attrition to break down clay contamination and remove organic material and other lightweight contaminants from your feed material. This scrubbing phase is typically done using four tactics – rotary barrel scrubbers, Logwashers, high-pressure washers, and attrition cells.
The minus 6mm fraction is delivered to the fines management phase where the inclusion of our customised hydrocyclone configuration enables the removal of the minus 63 micron fraction while the +63 micron to 6mm fraction is dewatered on our high-frequency dewatering screens.
Wastewater from the screening and fines management phase is delivered to the primary water treatment phase where 90% of process water is recirculated to your processing plant, minimising the volumes of fresh water required in your operation.
Eliminate Tailings in Your Mining Operations
The settled sludge from the wastewater management stage can then be delivered to a filter press which will eliminate the requirement for tailings dams, making your mine operation a much safer one.
