AIM-listed Premier African Minerals has completed the installation of an (XRT) sorter at its RHA tungsten mine in Hwange, Zimbabwe.
The company is optimising and integrating the sorter into the mine’s crushing circuits. Chief executive officer George Roach noted on Friday that the XRT formed an important part of the upgrades and improvements to the RHA plant.
“Initial running of the sorter on site has confirmed the identification and recovery of wolframite contained in ore,” he said.
The miner now intends to increase sorter recovery from the 82 percent it originally anticipated.
“We remain on track to produce wolframite this quarter,” he said.
“Apart from the upgrades to the plant, we have restarted open pit mining and started building a stockpile of run-of-mine ore from the open pit and underground,” Roach added. Miningweekly
