Diamond recovery from concentrate will be through magnetic separation and X-ray technology supplied by DebTech, with no grease table.
Two years later, Redaurum constructed a 10 t/h test plant on site which utilised a rotary diamond pan for concentration and a vibrating grease table for diamond recovery.
The heavy mineral concentrates recovered from the pans are passed with water over a vibrating grease table.
In addition, a grease table was installed to treat concentrate, which had been treated by the Company's primary production sortex machine.
A grease table recovery system will be operational by mid week.
The remainder of the total sample, along with tailings from the first 60 percent will be processed for diamonds on the Survey's grease table.
After many of the indicator minerals are extracted and the entire bulk sample is processed, the final concentrates will all be processed across the Survey's grease table in an attempt to extract diamonds.
The diamond-bearing concentrate will be delivered in sealed concentrate bins to a secure building containing grease tables for the final recovery of diamonds.
The major steps in diamond recovery are liberation, gravity concentration using rotary pans, and diamond recovery on grease tables, followed by hand sorting.
The final concentrate is fed onto sloping grease tables for removal
Furthermore, the fully automated sorting room with dual grease tables was constructed and is currently being prepared for shipment to the mine site in Guinea.
agency is equipped with grease tables used for extracting diamonds.
