Project: Lihir Island Gold Mine
Location: Papua New Guinea
Client: PT Newcrest Mining Limited
Lihir Gold contracted Lime Systems to design, manufacture and commission a receival station to accept and tip 20” ISO sea containers, a transfer system to a 200 T Silo, and an 8 TPH packaged roller mounted ball mill with cyclone classification to the client agitated storage tank.
Later a standalone building with a monorail built to accept bulk bags and deliver to a breaking station directly into an agitated mixing tank and transfer to the plant storage tank was added to the site. Due to the nature of the reagent (Potassium Amyl Xanthate) the area was classified as extremely hazardous and all pumps, motors, control panels were rated or located accordingly.
