Gold Beneficiation: Route to Sustainable Development Paul Jourdan President and CEO, Mintek Beneficiation forms one of the three legs to a resourcebased technology strategy. The other legs include developing hightech inputs into the minerals sector and the lateral migration of products initially intended for the mining sector into other sectors.
The Working Process of Beneficiation Production Line: Mined ore will be initial broken by Jaw Crusher, then evenly fed into the ball mill via the elevator after breaking to reasonable fineness, and the ore will be crushed and grinded by ball mill.
using South Africa and Chinas economic growth as the study case. 1. Beneficiating minerals (history) The term mineral beneficiation is generally defined as a value adding process on minerals from extraction to refining to production of the final consumable good. The
enhance value addition. The total net beneficiation of minerals is maximised by a combination of downstream and sidestream linkages. In the main, the beneficiation strategy is supported by a number provisions within existing national policy and legislation, such as the Minerals and Mining Policy for South Africa (1998),
production units with international competitive advantage. Late 1990s : Development of commercially sustainable mining sector projects, downstream beneficiation industries and linkages with other sectors of the economy. Specific focus on developing mining and mineral beneficiation projects, both new and
