Components and Processes

1. Excavators

The wash plant is operated by two excavators which can process 50 tonnes of dirt per hour each.

2. Wash Hopper

The wash hopper is the first component that the dirt passes through. It has protected or hidden spray nozzles on each of its three walls. The wash hopper can receive up to four buckets of dirt and disintegrates the dirt while delivering pre-washed dirt to the primary grizzly bars. It uses a slope ranging from 15° to 20°.

3. Primary Grizzly Bars

The primary grizzly bars receive the pre-washed dirt from the wash hopper. These bars have a spacing of ½ inch and are supported underneath by bars. The bars are not welded at the output every second bar, allowing for vibration and self-liberation of particles. The bars are placed at a good slope and vibrate to produce a fraction up to ½ inch.

4. Screen Unit

Particles smaller than ½ inch are received by the screen unit. The screen unit is made up of a strong frame and uses spanned wire rope with a 3 mm gap for the screen. It discards particles from 3/8" to ½ inch and produces a fraction of up to 3/8 inch.

5. Double-Bottom Box

Particles smaller than 3/8 inch from the screen unit are collected in the double-bottom box. The double-bottom box recovers the majority of gold and releases particles of 3/8 inch to the distribution system.

6. Distribution System

The distribution system receives particles smaller than 3/8 inch from the screen unit. It is separated into multiple boxes to serve a number of sluices. The distribution system has double-bottom inserts and a funnel for the release of concentrate. It is easy to stop any distributing sluice and distributes soil to the sluice array.

7. Gold Recovery Sluices

There are six gold recovery sluices in the wash plant. Each sluice receives particles up to 3/8 inch. The metal sluices have two aluminum sections, each with a width of 60 cm to 80 cm. The sluices are easy to clean by stopping a single distributing sluice at the distribution system and replacing the aluminum insert. The sluices have expanded metal in three sizes, a 3M vinyl loop unbacked mat, and vortex matting. The tailings from the sluices are directed to the previous excavated pit.

8. Medium Gold Sluice

The medium gold sluice receives particles from 3/8 inch to 1 inch from the screen unit. It aggressively recovers any particles within this range and outputs them to the medium gold screen.

9. Medium Gold Screen

The medium gold screen discards any particles larger than 3/8 inch and delivers any smaller particles to the medium gold tailings sluice.

10. Tailings Sluice

The tailings sluice is used on any output sluice to determine any gold losses and adjust or rig the system accordingly. It should be empty of any particles smaller than 3/8 inch and should never recover any gold. The tailings sluice is also used to adjust spray bars and slopes.

11. Concentrate Room

The concentrate room receives concentrates of any fraction and upgrades them. It provides final gold recovery, smelts and assays gold, and refines gold when needed. The concentrate room is under camera surveillance, has strict access control, and records production.

12. CleanGold Inserts

The CleanGold inserts are used in the gold recovery sluices to collect the concentrates. Each sluice has three CleanGold inserts.

13. Concentrate Buckets

All concentrates are kept in concentrate buckets for further inspection and recovery of any gold inside. The concentrate buckets are used for new gold recovery.

14. Final Gold and Cash Income

The final gold is collected and stored, ready for sale or further processing. It represents the cash income for the miners.

How the SYOGM Advance Wash Plant Works

The SYOGM Advance Wash Plant follows a series of processes to extract gold from dirt efficiently. Here is a step-by-step guide on how it works:

  1. Excavators collect dirt and deposit it into the wash hopper.

  2. The wash hopper disintegrates the dirt and delivers pre-washed dirt to the primary grizzly bars.

  3. The primary grizzly bars vibrate to dislodge and liberate particles up to ½ inch in size.

  4. The pre-washed dirt is then passed through the screen unit, which discards particles from 3/8 to ½ inch and produces a fraction of up to 3/8 inch.

  5. Particles smaller than 3/8 inch are collected in the double-bottom box, where they are recovered, and particles of 3/8 inch are released to the distribution system.

  6. The distribution system separates the particles smaller than 3/8 inch into different sluices for gold recovery.

  7. The gold recovery sluices receive the particles and use expanded metal, vinyl loop unbacked mat, and vortex matting to capture and recover the gold.

  8. The tailings from the sluices are directed to the previous excavated pit to discard any remaining materials.

  9. The medium gold sluice aggressively recovers particles from 3/8 inch to 1 inch and outputs them to the medium gold screen.

  10. The medium gold screen discards particles larger than 3/8 inch and delivers the smaller particles to the medium gold tailings sluice.

  11. The tailings sluice is used to adjust spray bars and slopes and to determine any gold losses.

  12. The concentrates from the gold recovery sluices are collected in the concentrate room, where they are upgraded and undergo further processing if necessary.

  13. The final gold is stored for sale or further processing, representing the cash income for the miners.

  14. All concentrates are kept in concentrate buckets for further inspection and recovery of any gold inside.

The SYOGM Advance Wash Plant design incorporates various components and processes to optimize the extraction and recovery of gold from dirt. It ensures efficient and effective gold recovery for miners in their own gold mines.
