A R12 million export order for equipment for a new gold mine in Indonesia has been secured by Johannesburg-based Osborn.

It is the company’s first business in Indonesia, and also represents the first foray of its mineral sizer into the gold-mining industry there, according to marketing director Martin Botha. A 550 model will be shipped to the Port of Jakarta (550mm shaft centres and 2 000mm-long case).

Traditionally employed in coal processing, the Osborn mineral sizer was proposed for this application due to the wet, sticky mining conditions in Indonesia, where mining is characterised by an abundance of mud, clay and rainfall.

The Osborn mineral sizer can work at a crushing ratio of up to 6:1. It has the capability of 10 000t/h, with a material feed size of over two cubic metres.

It is designed for installation in primary and secondary  applications, with a final output feed size of nominal 50mm.

The export order also includes an Osborn apron feeder and Super King screen, as well as a horizontal shaft impactor manufactured in the US by Osborn’s Astec Industries sister company KPI-JCI.

“This order is providing us with an exciting opportunity to take a multi-company approach – combining high-quality equipment offerings from Osborn and our fellow Astec group companies – in order to meet the customer’s requirements,” said Botha.
