TOMRA Sorter Recovers Product from Waste

This customer came to TOMRA looking to recover good ore from their tailings piles that had been accumulating for years. The tailings consisted of floats from a heavy media separation process. The customer knew that these tailings contained

a lot of good ore, but could find no practical way to recover it. TOMRA proposed using a COM Tertiary XRT 1200 sorter that employs X-ray sensing technology to differentiate good ore from waste. Bulk trials were conducted at the TOMRA lab in Wedel, leading to a decision to purchase the sorter. It was recently installed at the mine site in Nevada. The sorter’s performance has exceeded all expectations. The sorted product has higher than expected purity and the yield was much higher than projected. The net result is that this customer will be able to recover more than 150,000 tons per year of high quality ore from their tailings piles!
