Gekko Systems South American team is proud to confirm the sale of its 100th InLine Leach Reactor (ILR) unit.
The recent sale marks not only an impressive milestone for intensive cyanidation but also the first sale for Gekko into Brazil. Mineracao Caraiba’s Nova Xavantina project, will take delivery of the unit in October 2011. The unit is currently being pre-commissioned in Gekko’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
Gekko’s Brazilian and Argentinian agent, Diego Mielke of Minetec, worked hard with Nigel Grigg, Manager of Gekko’s South American office, to conclude this significant transaction.
Also in South America, our first Mexican ILR installation was recently commissioned at La Cienega, located in Durango, Mexico. The La Cienega mine site, owned by Industrias Penoles, is in the process of expanding capacity and the InLine Leach Reactor, model ILR150BA, is an important component of this project.
The ILR’s innovative design produces outstanding results due to highly efficient concentrate oxygenation systems. Appealing benefits of the ILR include:
- More cash in hand, sooner, with more gold and silver recovered on both fine and coarse mineral particles
- Unit recovery and operations data easily accessed automatically
Nick Katsikaros, Gekko’s intensive cyanidation guru and chemical engineer, said: "Higher recoveries, faster, guaranteed is our mantra and that’s what customers get from the ILR."
