Other Minerals

Gekko’s advanced devices for gravity separation of gold also have powerful applications in the recovery of tin/tantalum, diamond, garnet and other gemstone-containing material.

Because all these minerals can be separated based on their unique specific gravity, Gekko’s expertise in gravity concentration and design of energy-efficient flowsheets can be applied.

In fact, Stokes Law defining the physical settling and separation of solids, as well as viscosity and fluid dynamics, all play a part in determining an optimal process circuit for recovering tin/tantalum, diamond, garnet and other gemstones.

Diamond, Tin/Tantulum are common minerals that can be recovered using Gekko equipment.

Other Minerals Recovery

Gekko’s unique InLine Pressure Jig is the core innovation harnessed for recovering tin/tantalum, diamond, garnet and other gemstones from significant ore deposits.

Gekko’s expert technical specialists in gravity separation techniques will design and develop an optimal flowsheet for this specific type of material.

Gekko's Approach

Gekko advise complete laboratory testwork for all mineral and metal deposits to identify critical composition features and important gravity separation characteristics.

Such testwork will inform Gekko’s process design team and ensure they produce an efficient recovery flowsheet for this type of deposit.
