Gekko Systems celebrated the 10th anniversary of its operations in Vancouver, Canada with a dinner in Toronto prior to the PDAC conference.
A number of Gekko’s customers and supporters joined in the celebrations with Sandy Gray, Gekko’s Technical Director, Adam Hesse, Vice President, North American Operations, and several members of Gekko’s global Technical Team.
Gekko’s Canadian office has had a successful run since its opening with highlights including ongoing successful plant installations at Agnico-Eagle Meadowbank, Aurizon Casa Berardi and Sumitomo’s Pogo operations. To date, Gekko’s largest intensive cyandation unit in North America is an ILR4000BA, which is capable of handling nine tons per day of concentrate and is currently being delivered to Detour Lake.
According to Adam Hesse, Gekko’s Canadian office is delivering a higher level of support to customers in the region, adding that the company’s focus and commitment to innovative solutions and low-energy alternatives will play an increasingly important role in the mineral processing industry.
Gekko Systems recognises the strong global presence of Canadian mining industry companies and their leading position in the market with their worldwide mining developments.
Milestones celebrated in 2011 also included 10 years of business in South Africa, two years of operation in Chile, and 15 years of worldwide innovation at the Head Office in Ballarat.
Gekko Systems specialises in the design, development and distribution of innovative mineral processing equipment and systems with a particular focus on gravity separation systems.
