LUNDT, M.  e  DE KORTE, G.J.. Leeuwpan fine coal dense medium plant. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2010, vol.110, n.11, pp.671-676. ISSN 2411-9717.

Exxaro installed their first ultra fines treatment plant at Leeuwpan Coal mine. The plant is now fully operational and results already show that the plant has great potential. The plant was designed and installed by DRA. Several challenges were faced during the installation due to the space constraints in the Leeuwpan plant. Efficiency tests were conducted on both modules after commissioning and showed very promising results. A lower ash product with a higher yield can be produced with the fine coal dense medium cyclones compared to the spirals previously employed.

Palavras-chave : Leeuwpan; dense medium cyclones; fines beneficiation; magnetic separators; high yield.
