CPC was engaged by Mauritanian Copper Mines to undertake a study on the brownfield installation of a gravity concentrator at their Guelb Moghrein mine. The aim was to improve recovery of free gold. CPC was awarded the detailed design.
The circuit is fed from the ball mill discharge hopper with a pump feeding a gravity screen. Underflow from the screen feeds a Knelson QC48 gravity concentrator. Concentrate is pumped to an existing leach circuit.
