Global supplier of engineering solutions Weir Minerals has announced its sponsorship of CEEC International Ltd (Coalition for Eco-Efficient Comminution). CEEC is a not-for-profit company funded wholly by sponsorship from the minerals industry.
A world-leading provider of slurry handling equipment used in mining and mineral processing applications, Weir Minerals recently signed an exclusive and perpetual license for KHD High Pressure Grinding Rolls (HPGR), which allows the company direct control over the design, manufacture and distribution of HPGR in minerals processing applications using KHD technology.
Weir Minerals Global Comminution VP, Dr Ekkhart Matthies comments that the CEEC’s work highlights and promotes the efficiency gains possible in ore processing through improved processes and new technology. He adds that CEEC’s work aligns with Weir Minerals’ strategy of maximising their customers’ comminution productivity levels.
The HPGR technology has been demonstrated to deliver significant productivity gains in mineral processing, particularly in hard rock mining operations. This technology is expected to play a critical role as ore grades decline and more challenging resources are mined.
Weir also offers other comminution equipment, designs and services such as crushers and screens under their ‘Enduron’ product banner in addition to world leading mill linings and screen media solutions.
CEEC sponsors include Anglo American, Barrick Gold, Gold Fields, Newcrest Mining Indophil Resources NI, Gekko Systems, Ausenco, Xstrata Technology, Outotec, Orica Mining Services, Derrick Corporation, Metso, AMIRA International, JKTech, MMG, and Russell Mineral Equipment. CEEC also enjoys the patronage of Nick Holland, CEO of Gold Fields and Owen Hegarty of G-Resources Group.
