TOMRA Mining XRT technology delivers significant grade improvement at Saloro’s tungsten mine
TOMRA has installed a first X-Ray Transmission (XRT) sorter at Saloro’s tungsten mine in Barruecopardo, Spain. The sorter, implemented in the beneficiation stage, is consistently delivering a much higher head grade to the processing plant, significantly reducing costs.
Saloro approached TOMRA Mining to explore ways to further improve the head grade to the processing plant: “We were looking for equipment capable of sorting ore with scheelite content in order to remove the non-mineralized product from the feed line,” explains Pedro Jiménez, Plant Manager at the Barruecopardo mine.
We are convinced that this sorting technology from TOMRA Mining will help Saloro to significantly improve efficiency and production at the plant,
TOMRA’s hallmark collaborative approach stands out
TOMRA Mining has developed a solid reputation for its collaborative approach to helping mining operations add value to their mines. This project was no exception, and Pedro Jiménez has found that TOMRA stood out for “its involvement with Saloro. Communication with members of their team is very fluid and fast. Their willingness to solve the problems that have arisen has been very effective. From the very beginning, they have kept a close eye on the status of the project and monitored its progress on an almost daily basis.”
