Peter Simpson of GCA recently conducted a six-month post-commissioning health check at Roxgold’s Yaramoko Gold Mine in Burkina Faso, which operates two KC-XD20 FLSmidth Knelson Concentrators and a CS500 Consep Acacia Reactor in a gold recovery circuit.
The complete gravity recovery package, which also includes two SDS386 scalping screens, was supplied by FLSmidth Knelson and Consep, and commissioned by Peter in May 2016. Since then, the Yaramoko gold plant has run almost trouble-free, with overall gold recovery levels typically in excess of 98%, of which about 60% is attributable to the gravity recovery circuit. The feed grade is approximately 15g per ton of gold, with plant residues of less than 0.3g gold per ton.
This outstanding performance is a result of top quality personnel and equipment. GCA has very rarely visited mining sites as well maintained and operated as Yaramoko. We congratulate Roxgold and echo their motto: “Best in Class”.
