Zimbabwe has abundant natural resources, coal, chromium, gold, silver, iron, asbestos, lithium, and niobium, lead, zinc, tin, uranium, copper, nickel, etc. Coal, iron, chromium, and asbestos deposits are famous in the world for the large quantity. Zimbabwe has been a crazy plundering Africa wealth of western colonists, and it was referred as "the jewel in the crown" before it was independent. Coal reserves are about 27 billion tons. Iron reserves are about 250 million tons. Chromium and asbestos reserves are large. This country is lack of water resources. Main industrial categories are metal and metal processing, food processing, oil, chemical industry, drinks and tobacco, textile, paper making and printing, etc.
In 2008, the domestic political and economic situation continues to deteriorate and the international financial crisis, most mining companies are closed. Since the coalition government was establishment in February 2009, mining industry began to recover. Mining industry grew 26% year-on-year in 2011. According to the report, Zimbabwe platinum producer has regarded Engels's area underground mine as the company $258 million plan's first phase of expansion plans for the long term. Once realizing full production, the new platinum mining is expected to push up Zimbabwe mining company's ore annual output to 4.5 million tons, and the platinum output will be 5 tons.
For mining platinum ore in Zimbabwe, SBM supplies and evaluate equipment to make unbiased selections of the best equipment for this mining processing. SBM can provide the full range of capabilities to convert run of mine platinum to saleable products, integrating engineering and process know-how in development and optimization of plant designs for platinum that meets global environmental standards.
Platinum mining plant usually includes three main processing stages: crushing, grinding and beneficiation stages. The first two stages are used to get large scale raw platinum materials into fine size. Beneficiation plant will help to get fine powder materials into high grade and pure materials.
The main machine used in platinum mining plant has jaw crusher, cone crusher, impact crusher, mobile crusher and ball mill, vertical roller mill, ultrafine mill and mobile grinding plant. Of course, in the whole production line, it needs the auxiliary equipment to finish the whole processing, such as the vibrating feeder, vibrating screen, belt conveyor and so on. In beneficiation plant, all kinds of beneficiation machines will be used, like, separators, washing machine etc. These beneficiation machines will cooperate with main processing equipment to make the whole line for Zimbabwe platinum production line.

Collahuasi is one of the worlds highest, harshest job sites.The landscape is so desolate it is sometimes described as moon like. Extreme climatic conditions and a low in oxygen environment put thoroughgoing challenges to men and equipment.
Since 1995 ABB delivered and installed the automation system for the open-pit copper mine located in the middle of the Andes, in a historical mining area.The latest project, the automation system based on the Industrial IT System 800xA for a crusher including the delivery conveyor, intermediate bunker and a feeding conveyor to the Collahuasi copper proceeding facility seamlessly integrates with the already installed systems.The project demonstrated the products reliability the high value of customer relationship over time.
Stranded 4,200 to 4,700 meters above sea level in the Andes and surrounded by northern Chiles brutally barren Tarapac Desert, the Collahuasi copper mine is subject to conditions that are unprecedented, and unrelenting. Breathing is a struggle in the thin air with barometric pressure of about 0.5 to 0.7 bar.Temperatures rarely top 11 degrees Celsius during the day and normally plunge below freezing at night.
Ferocious blizzards, lightningstorms, and active volcanoes batter the region.There are no trees, signs of animal life are rare, and humans are almost unheard of the nearest settlement is nearly 100 kilometers away. Challenges
The operating company of the mine, the Compaia Minera Doa Ines de Collahuasi SCM (CMDIC) ears those conditions in mind when placing the latest extension order for the electrical equipment of a crusher and a belt conveyor system: the company decided on an extremely rugged solution with the reliable Industrial IT Extended Automation System 800xA and ACS 6000 water-cooled medium-voltage frequency converters from ABB. A belt conveyor system to transport the mined material consisting of two rising and one downhill belt, an intermediate bunker and three feeder belts completes this order, which is now successfully commissioned and in operation.The automation system controls and supervises the transport copper ore from a new mine to the existing processing plant.
The order traces back to the excellent customer relationship over time, explains Horst Mcklich, head of Business Center Foreign Accounts, Center of Excellence Open Pit Mining Germany. Since 1995 ABB has been successfully working with Compaa Minera Doa Ins de Collahuasi.
The company operates the copper mine in Chile, which is the fourth largest in the world. The first order to monitor and control the mines total production on-line Based on an Advant control system. In 2001, ABB received an order comprising drives and ring motors for one SAG mill and two ball mills.
system, consisting of rising and downhill belts and storage facilities, where supplied five 2 MW motors with ACS 6000 drives. The window to access System 800xA Operations user interface enable operators to supervise and maintain the process. Several detailed process displays provide a graphical overview, indicating basic information about equipment status and conditions in configurable colors. Operators may take actions through faceplates, which deliver compressed information about drives, sensors and other devices. User rights prevent non-authorized users access to restricted settings like for example changing tuning parameters, thus keeping the system in a solid state. National language support is another key feature, due people of different nationalities and therefore with different mother tongues work in the copper mine.Determining through Microsoft Windows language settings pictures and dialogues are available either in English, German or Spanish language. System 800xA is open to connect to various controllers and control system families like Advant,Melody, Freelance or Harmony using so called Connection Packages. So integration of the existing proven controllers (i.e. AC 450 and AC 110), which were installed in previous steps, become childs play.
Drives integrated Redundant controllers of type AC 800M execute the application programs to control the application for the crusher and the conveyor belts. Because of the high power requirement and the altitude of the mine,medium voltage frequency converters of the type ACS 6000 with new low-power modules are first choice. They are interfaced and controlled by controllers of type AC 80. This controller manages access to drive information using fast built-in communication possibilities and fairly eases their integration into the overall control system. Huge energy savings
Three ACS 6000s power another belt conveying the material down an altitude difference of app. 340 meters.The regenerative drives of this belt, which spans a distance of about 5400 m, return braking energy back to the power network resulting in substantial energy saving because it does not waste the energy as heat. The four-quadrant drive ACS 6000 MultiDrive W provides with direct water-cooling, which makes the converter extremely compact and silent. The enclosing cabinets meet up to protection class IP 54, thus providing the robust design needed for those harsh environmental conditions. Direct water cooling provides for a much smaller design, saving up to 50% of space. It delivers an extremely low audible noise level and avoids excessive ambient temperature variations. Additionally it reduces the need for high-power filtered air-cooling in the installation rooms. Along with the high efficiency, direct water-cooling offers effective and easy heat transfer without air filtering problems.
This article will help new players and people who are simply "stuck" with creating a good layout for whatever tier they are in. The layouts in this page are not the best you can make in their respective tier, however they will definitely help you to get the ball rolling and will act as a sort of "bridge" leading to better and better layouts. (Ores can also spawn on factory or machine conveyors to save space without using a conveyor, although it may look messy it's worth having if youre just starting the game)
The company said that commissioning activities at Cambodia-based Okvau are well advanced and have initially focused on the processing of oxide ore from crusher to the SAG mill, and through the CIL tanks, stripping circuits and detox circuit.
"The focus will now shift to commissioning the fine grind float circuit and adding higher grade sulphide ore to the process plant over coming weeks as the Okvau Gold Project ramps up to full production.
"The Company maintains its guidance that the production at the Okvau Gold Project is forecast to be 100,000oz to 110,000oz per annum in line with the Companys Definitive Feasibility Study releases on 1 May 2017 and subsequently updated on 26 November 2019," writes Emerald Resources.
The geological conditions create new challenges in your copper mine. Declining ore grades mean less metal production for each ton processed. And as you have to dig deeper and into harder rock you face longer haulage distances and increased wear of your equipment which translates into higher operational costs.
To remain productive, you need endurable and reliable equipment that increases your productivity. As a full flowsheet provider, we have proven ourselves as a supplier of premium equipment in every step of the process from comminution to filtration. Your solution will be based on our more than 130 years of experience with processing equipment combined with more than 40 years in the copper industry.
This experience gives you bigger and more efficient equipment capable of increasing production at reduced costs. Examples are larger grinding equipment, large capacity high density thickeners, and new flotation cells that help brownfield mines gain a higher throughput in order to maintain production. Our energy efficient equipment also helps you keep operational costs at a minimum and reduce your environmental impact.
How you manage water has a direct impact on your license to operate in the copper mining industry. Governments across the world are enforcing new water regulations, and tensions with local communities about the right to use the water can be time consuming and costly.
Together with Goldcorp, we have developed EcoTailsthat blends filtered tailings with waste rock creating a high-density geotechnically stable product called GeoWaste. This makes dry-stacking possible even for large scale operations, and even in areas with high seismic activities. Furthermore, EcoTails enables recirculation of 90-95 per cent of your process water.
Not only does this save you operational costs on your copper mine, it also reduces closure costs and makes it easier to obtain your social license to operate, as it reduces the risk of water contamination. EcoTailsTM can bring an end to tailings dam and thus eliminate the risk of tailings dam failures as well as lessen your projects environmental impact.
Rapid Oxidative Leach (ROL) is another of our innovative about to rock your world. This mechano-chemical process can leach 97-99% copper directly on site, from concentrates as low as 5% copper in less than six hours. This makes it feasible for you to produce cathode copper from concentrate directly at the site rather than to sell the concentrate to a smelter. The ROL process can even leach copper from arsenic-ladden concentrates.
