About the Micron Mill Wave Table:
The largest model, the M10, does up to 8tph and the M8 model about 1tph. The compact M5 unit will soon be released for sale. For their throughputs, they have very small footprints compared to conventional shaking tables.
The M8 is the same as the M7 but is set up to operate on Australian power supply.
About Wave Tables, Ian says:
“I have personally had success with the Wave Table recovering (particularly very fine) heavy minerals such as gold, mineral sands (zircon & rutile), tantalite, scheelite, stibnite etc. Because it is so efficient at recovering very fine particle sizes, it has proved excellent as a scavenger on tailings.
Ian's mining experience:
“I have been in the mining, exploration and mineral processing industry for over 30 years. With wide mining experience including deep gold mining in the South African Witwatersrand. Also silver, lead and zinc mining in several Broken Hill mines. Also successful opal mining stints in Queensland and NSW. More recently, in both hard rock and alluvial gold mining within NSW."
About gold recovery, Ian says:
“With gold, the Wave Table can be used in the smallest to the largest gold mine. Wave Tables can be used for full scale production purposes, or simply as a clean-up/concentration device in the gold room. The Wave Table is now increasingly being used to recover gold from test samples of a couple of kgs in size and upwards. This form of bulk testing is quite quick and the quantitative results mean that one is not just relying on fire assays, particularly in visible, free gold deposits.”
