Gold or Silver Gravity Concentration Plant


If the gold ore has much granular gold which can be to recovered by gravity to get a good benefit, HZE advises the customer to build a gravity separation / beneficiation plant which has some advantages: low capital, short construction period, cheap operation cost, convenient management and simple metallurgy.

The ore is the grinding circuit after the stage of crushing and screening. If the raw ore contains some sticky slime and clay, the washing equipment such as the trammel screen or scrubber should be added into the crushing circuit.

Commonly used gravity equipment includes jigs, centrifugal concentrators and shaking tables. The sluice boxes are also used as effective facilities for efficient gold recovery.

The concentrate obtained by gravity can be produced the ingots by pyrometallurgy or hydrometallurgy.

The tailings of gravity can be pumped to the tailings impoundment or sent to the circuit of flotation, cyanidation or others to recover the residual gold as much as possible.
