The Gekko Difference
Gekko is passionate about finding better ways to perform comminution, so much so that Gekko have established a not-for-profit educational organisation called the Coalition for Eco-Efficient Comminution (CEEC). This organisation is supported by a broad range of mining sector companies with the common goal to accelerate awareness, knowledge transfer and, as a result, improve energy and cost outcomes in the substantive area of comminution.
Historically, traditional crushers and jigs use vast amounts of energy that, over the entire mineral processing operation, are expensive and inefficient to operate.
Gekko’s core technologies, the InLine Pressure Jig and the Python processing plant play a key role in producing energy-efficient comminution flowsheets. Coarse liberation of minerals at the start of the process reduces energy input and this has flow-on effects for energy savings during downstream processing. The type of comminution device employed by a mining operation is extremely important for minimising energy costs and maximising profits.
The modular design and clever construction of the InLine Pressure Jig and Python processing plant components provide exceptional speed-to-operation for fast financial returns, as well as energy-efficient and environmentally friendly processes.
Gekko’s technical services team will perform extensive testwork on an ore body to understand its mineralogy and comminution characteristics. Then Gekko will recommend and design the optimum comminution flowsheet to deliver maximum mineral liberation. For more information, contact Gekko’s technical services team today.
