Overview

CPC undertook the design, supply and construction of various projects aimed at increasing the recovery of the Sandfire Resources Degussa Copper Mine process plant. These included the expansion of the crushing and flotation circuits.

The flotation circuit comprised of the installation of an Eriez 4.27 m diameter by 10.0 m high cleaner scalping column in order to improve the copper recovery and final concentrate grade. In addition to the metallurgical improvements, operability and stability of the cleaner circuit were greatly improved.

The installation also included control improvements through the installation of a StarCS process control system and BlueCube online analyser technology.
