Xstrata Technology’s 100th IsaMill sold


Xstrata Technology has celebrated the sale of its 100th IsaMill to the global mineral processing industry. The mill was one of four large 3MW M10,000 IsaMills installed in South Africa at projects operated by Anglo American Platinum, two of which are partnered with Xstrata Alloys and African Rainbow Minerals.

With the completion of the four new mills in 2013, Anglo American Platinum will have a 26 mill fleet and an installed IsaMill base of almost 80MW spread among 13 of its operating plants. The technology helps to address declining ore quality by raising recovery rates, and improves product grade by through enhanced value mineral liberation and improved flotation kinetics and by modifying the milled product surface and slurry chemistry.

Chris Rule, head of concentrator technology at Anglo American Platinum, said: “The collaborative journey that Anglo American Platinum and Xstrata Technology have been on has been a dynamic and rewarding ten year experience. IsaMill stirred milling is now an accepted part of the PGM industry concentrator flow sheet in both concentrate regrinds and mainstream regrind applications.”
