:: APT Awarded Contract For 120tph Cassiterite Gravity Recovery Plant


Appropriate Process Technologies is proud to announce being awarded a contract to design, build, supply and commission a gravity based plant to process ore for the recovery of contained cassiterite. The plant will follow the winning APT formula of modular pre-assembled unit components to make for easy and fast assembly and commissioning on this remote site.

The formula was further enhanced by APT’s associate mineral testwork laboratory Peacocke & Simpson having been contracted to undertake the process development testing upon bulk samples of the ore. “This capability again proved its worth by allowing us to quickly and effectively identify process enhancements that are incorporated into the plant design”, said APT Design Engineer Gary McFarlane.

This large new project is the eighth APT plant catering to non-precious metals and clearly underlines the company’s capability in this area. “We see this as a very important sector to the future of the company” said APT’s CEO Kevin Peacocke. “We are seeing a strong upsurge of interest particularly from the tin, tantalite and tungsten processing sector and by applying our wide experience from the gold sector, where we are also very strong, we believe APT has something unique and special to offer."

“Fortuitously APT recently completed an expansion to cater for another large project utilizing Knelson concentrators and APT Tritanks for gold recovery”, said Peter Simpson, “so the company has the capacity to undertake this and other projects that we are currently negotiating towards."
