Demand for Gekko Systems ' InLine Leach Reactor is growing continuously with 90 units being sold since the first commercial installation in 1999, and incredibly, even the prototype unit is still in operation at Bendigo’s Henty operation in Tasmania.
The InLine Leach Reactor was developed by Gekko System for the purpose of optimising the recovery of gold from high grade concentrate streams. This mineral recover unit is designed to operate in conjunction with a distributed control system or as a stand alone unit with minimal operator input. The unit is designed on a skid base with an integrated control system, resulting in minimal on-site construction.
The dimensions of the InLine Leach Reactor mineral recover unit are small allowing it to be placed in a convenient position close to the discharge of gravity concentrates. All solid and liquid waste products can be pumped back to the grinding circuit or removed if tramp steel or other unwanted products are present. The pregnant solution is then pumped to the gold room, and spent solution from the electrowin cell is recirculated back to the Reactor feed.
The InLine Leach Reator’s global position in the mining industry reflects the mineral recovery unit's technical design advantage and Gekko System's highly skilled technical team. Gekko engineers are leaders in advanced research in the area of intensive leach technology for gold and silver concentrates.
InLine Leach Reactor mineral recovery units feature a unique drum-based design that ensures higher recoveries of both fine and coarse gold. Additional benefits enjoyed by InLine Leach Reactor customers include:
- high levels of automation
- autonomous operation
- good data output; and
- high security.
