Our turn-key ore processing 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 small scale miners, industrial-grade turn-key systems are the most cost effective ore processors for continuous operations. Our jaw crusher, hammer mill, and fine gold shaker table form the processing core, and are integrated into a turn-key unit with structural frameworks, linked hoppers, feeders, conveyors, and wiring, ready for connection to a power and water sources.
Our turn-key ore processors utilize a cost-effective, heavy-duty hammer mill for final ore pulverization just prior to separation on the gravity shaker table. Designed for proof-of-concept and bulk sampling programs, they can also easily handle 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.
