Our turnkey systems are easily run and easily maintained gravity concentration plants: simple, proven mechanics with no computers or electronics. Environmental and personnel safety issues are minimized with zero need for leach chemicals or mercury.
For the small scale miner, our turnkey systems are the most cost effective, industrial grade processors available for continuous operation. The jaw crusher, hammer mill, and fine gold shaker table form the central processor, and are integrated into a turnkey unit with structural frameworks, linked hoppers, feeders, conveyors, and wiring, ready for connection to a power source and water source.
Our turnkey ore processors utilize a cost-effective, heavy-duty hammer mill for final ore pulverization just prior to separation on the gravity shaker table. They are intended for proof-of-concept and bulk sampling programs, as well as commercial production of up to several thousand tons of ore.
Long-term maintenance costs and downtime can be significant with a hammer mill, so a permanent, larger-scale operation may choose to utilize a ball mill. The operator must consider the cost/benefit equation, as the upfront ball mill cost is more than a hammer mill. However, our turnkey ore processors are designed so that the hammer mill can be directly replaced by a ball mill at a future time, with all other machinery remaining in service.
