Gold Ore Separator Plant in South Africa

Separating gold from rock ore is a multi-step process that involves grinding the rock ore, creating a liquid solution, including additives to cause the gold to precipitate out of the solution and gathering the gold. After the gold is separated from the ore, it is further refined to remove impurities. Gold found in thick veins is economically easy to separate from the rock ore independent of the price of gold; however, gold particles found in large rock ore deposits are only economically feasible to separate when the price of gold is high. SBM provides high quality gold ore separator plant in South Africa and all over the world.

Gravity Concentration

Gravity concentration processes rely on the principal that gold contained within an ore body is higher in specific gravity than the host rocks that contain the gold. Elemental gold has a specific gravity of 19.3, and typical ore has a specific gravity of about 2.6. All gravity concentration devices create movement between the gold and host rock particles in a manner to separate the heavy pieces from the lighter pieces of material.

Panning is probably the oldest technique used for the recovery of gold. Panning is a type of gravity concentration used by prospectors for the recovery of gold from river beds. It concentrates the heavy gold particles at the bottom of the pan while the light gangue is washed off on top.


The flotation process consists of producing a mineral concentrate through the use of chemical conditioning agents followed by intense agitation and air sparging of the agitated ore slurry to produce a mineral rich foam concentrate.

Specific chemicals are added to either float specific minerals or to depress the flotation of other minerals. Several stages of processing are generally involved with rough bulk flotation products being subjected to additional flotation steps to increase product purity.
