Eschol mining (PTY) Ltd

The company gives an all in one mining solution.
Projects often start with the presentation of small sample of material by local people that initiate the prospecting phase.
Structured geo physical information and sampling is done with the later aim to construct a comprehensive resource statement. This include mapping of the ore body on accurate surveying maps. By then collecting all geophysical information to develop 3D modulation of the ore volumes as end product. Calculations from this model is making the mining method and planning easy.
Comprehensive mineralogy is vital part of any mining operation. There are not two mines exactly similar and it can influence the choice of processing equipment drastically. Analytical work is done on the samples but in order to contribute to the final recourse statement there must be a planned sampling procedure.
Correct analytical equipment and procedures is often the success of metallurgical investigation of a mineral. Highly qualified personnel and objective approach is proven to be the key to extractive metallurgical process design.
Open cast or underground mining have huge negative financial implications if it is not well planned. There are numerous factors to consider and the end product could be a combined open and underground operation.
5. Process design
The process design starts with the blasting procedure. The recovery process is dictated by the mineralogical information. Ore dressing is the first important step and must be design according to the recovery method to follow.
6. Recovery plant design
The specific equipment and configurations are directly linked to the per cent recovery of mineral. The most important factors to consider are the capital available; the infrastructure available; and the size of the operation.
Beatification is usually seen as an industrial process and does not necessarily form part of the mining operation. This section can be done as a centralized industry receiving multiple mines production
Market ready products produced by a mine reduce the money turnaround time. The main parameter here is the economical cut off parameters, and the optimization there off.
