SGS experts provide dense media separation (DMS) services for gold, diamonds and other gems and heavy minerals with a fully serviced and permitted processing facility.

Mine

SGS’s mini-bulk testing plant set-ups offer:

  • 1 and 15 t/hour throughputs
  • 2 x 1 t/hr plants – 100 mm cyclone for recovery of material up to 6 mm
  • 1 x 15 t/hr plant – 360 mm cyclone for recovery of material up to 25 mm
  • Plant operating efficiency monitored using density tracers

In certain circumstances, dense media separation plants can be configured to follow complex gravity circuits, multi gravity separation and/or other separation techniques such as flotation. This can provide effective low cost solutions to allow the optimal economic recovery of complex ores.

SGS can provide bench-scale flowsheet development, pilot scale testing and plant audit and optimization services, depending on the needs of a project or facility. With our array of equipment and experience, SGS can readily provide bankable cost effective processing flowsheets and advise on operational best practices during plant start-up based on our extensive production experience.
