A four-stage crushing circuit produces a minus-6-mm product from run-of-mine ore at a treatment rate of 1 million mt/y, feeding a fine ore bin that feeds the concentrator on a continuous 24-hr basis.
Workers drill or blast to release the ore, load it into trucks, and drive it underground to an underground ore bin.
It included the installation of two new separator stages to increase the yield and of an ore bin in front of a crusher for optimised crushing.
Writing in 1976 for The Ore Bin, a publication of the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, two geologists described it this way: "Steens Mountain, in Harney County, is Oregon's highest and scenically grandest fault-block mountain.
Jacobs Engineering Group, together with MCA Group, recently received industry recognition of its achievements on a project to extend the life of a large crude ore bin for Glencore's Mount Isa mines in Queensland, Australia.
This project included the installation of two new separator stages to increase the yield and the installation of an ore bin in front of a crusher for optimised crushing.
Two ground bins will be excavated -- a 2,500 t coarse ore bin after the gyratory crusher and a 4,000 t run-of-mine bin before the crusher.
By placing the 8,000-mt ore bin underground, the head frame is shortened by 54 m.
Once completed, low grade ore will be introduced into the crusher and the fine ore bin will be filled.
Crushing plant product is conveyed to a 1,800 t capacity fine ore bin, located in the mill building itself.
The 14 t Kraz trucks deliver ore to a 80,000 t stockpile area and ore feeds from the ore bin to the original Soviet single-toggle jaw crusher, upgraded by the addition of a variable speed feeder to raise its throughput to 200 t/h.
This equipment consists of an additional ore bin and an additional mill that will give the plant two parallel milling lines in place of the single line in current use; an additional larger thickener that will replace the No.
