CP1 – Process Plants


The Wet Concentrator Plant (“WCP”) and Minerals Separation Plant (“MSP”) treat the ore from the mine to first produce heavy minerals concentrate, which is then separated into its constituent minerals ilmenite, rutile and zircon – in the MSP.

In the WCP the main unit operations include slimes separation and thickening, water recovery and spirals concentration.

The MSP comprises of feed preparation, electromagnetic ilmenite separation, electrostatic rutile separation and zircon purification. Production storage and load out facilities are also included.
