ROSEBY COPPER PROJECT - PROCESSING FACILITY
New project of Mining - Primary And Secondary Processing (Minerals Processing) project at North west of, Cloncurry, QLD 4824. The process plant is to be located immediately adjacent the Blackard Pit. The basic processes include: primary crushing, comprising feed bin, apron feeder, crusher and dust suppression, grinding in a single stage SAG mill and classification in cyclones, optional stockpiling of primary crushed or to de-couple the grinding and flotation processes for the crushing operations, rougher and scavenger flotations, rougher concentrate regrinding to improve final concentrate grade, two stages of cleaner flotation, concentrate thickening and filtration and filter cake storage before transportation, tailings thickening and disposal storage facility and reagents preparation and services.
