This project undertakes laboratory-based research into enhancing coarse gangue liberation through precisely controlled breakage energy using traditional and next generation Vertical Shaft Impactor (VSI) technologies. The research focuses on:                                                                                                       

  • Rejection of coarse clean gangue from a wider range of ore types
  • Use precisely controlled breakage to enhance the current GE approach
  • Develop laboratory testing protocols to identify ores suitable for coarse liberation
  • Gain significant reduction in unite energy consumption
