Located 145km south of Port Hedland is the world’s fourth-largest Iron Ore producer. Due to begin production by December 2022, the pioneering process design, including the use of a dry crushing and grinding circuit, will produce a high-grade, magnetite concentrate product.
The project focus has been to create an energy and cost-effective ore processing system with safety and the environment as the backbone. Following the successful completion of stage 1, stage 2 will see the reclaiming and conveying construction efficiently designed to optimize local terrain and reduce earthworks.
Lincom Group, together with Thor Global, a leading manufacturer of bulk material handling equipment, has been awarded the contract for the design, manufacture, and supply of a stockpiling system to handle the dry rejects material.
Working in conjunction with the main site conveyor system, the THORSTACKER T130 Telescopic Portable Radial Conveyor will be running together with three THOR LINK TC120 Grasshopper/Link Conveyors to allow for the best stacking arrangements and efficient, high-capacity stockpiling. Engineered for a quick set-up and high production, the THOR LINK conveyors will increase the performance and flexibility of the entire operation reducing material loss and making better use of the space available.
The equipment has been mocked up at a WA Lincom Group facility to accommodate the site’s personnel to complete inspections and schedule the commission. Lincom Group’s significant equipment commissions up-to-date and its local branch in Western Australia were a crucial component of the partnership.
