Commodity:

Nickel

 

 

Scope of Work

OMC’s scope of work was to assess, supervise and optimise comminution testwork (scrubbing in particular) for various ore blends. Based on the testwork results, a suitable comminution circuit was then sized.

 

Flowsheet

The circuit consisted of an open circuit scrubber followed by three separate treatment circuits; one of which included thickening following by leaching, the second circuit was a closed circuit ball mill and the third circuit consisted of a closed circuit SAG mill.

 

Notable Feature

OMC’s scope of work was to assess, supervise and optimise comminution testwork (scrubbing in particular) for various ore blends. Based on the testwork results, a suitable comminution circuit was then sized.

 

Outcome

The inclusion of various treatment circuits allowed operational flexibility and ensured ores of various characteristics is treated concurrently and optimally.
