Gravity Separation


Gravity Separation involves using heavy media separation and in-line pressure jigs at coarse scale (>10mm) generating individual particle separations based on density. Amenability and separation outcomes are a function of texture and mineralogy at this scale. Conditioning feed for coarse gravity separation typically requires secondary crushing and screening to deliver a carefully constrained particle size distribution. For this reason, coarse gravity separation in Grade Engineering® applications primarily operates as a ‘cleaner’ in combination with streams derived using other levers.
