Sustainability and environmental consideration stand at the core of IMA’s philosophy. Everything we do is to help mines become more efficient and environmentally sustainable. In Bulk Ore Sorting the IMA BOSS is removing waste rock from mineral concentrator feed material and replacing it from ore recovered by sorting from waste rock.
With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we have reduced and, in many cases, halted completely our travel plans to visit our customers. We worked hard to transform and adapt to the new global economical and environmental situations, and this led to remote deliveries and installation of our smart mining solutions. This month we delivered and installed the IMACON remotely in Peru. Our solutions are installed and used in a copper mine.
Since the beginning of 2021, we have seen an increase in demand for our data driven mining technology, especially for IMACON and conveyor belt applications (BOSS – Bulk Ore Sorting System). This month we are delivering and remotely installing IMACON and conveyor applications solutions in Peru, Chile and South Africa.
IMA Engineering carried out grade control study in a low grade nickel mine, utilizing the new Percussive Drill Sampler – Analyzer (PDSA) trailer mounted version. The goal of the study was to compare the current mine grade control method with the new continuous On-Line sampling and analysis method, and calculate it’s effect to the mine economy.
