1991-1-1  The gold occurs as particles in the 10-60 micron size range, but some coarser, visible gold is present [8]. The ball mill discharge feeds the jig directly (i.e. with no intermediate cyclone). The jig concentrate contains 1000 g/t Au and recovers 40 to 45% of the total gold in the mill feed.

The concentrate from the Knelson Concentrators is fed to the Acacia reactor in the gold room for gold recovery by intensive cyanidation. Acacia tailings are returned to the ball mill circuit and pregnant solution is pumped to electrowinning cells. The trash screen overflow falls into a bunker whilst the underflow is fed to two thickeners.
