ug2 ore processing plant

ug2 ore processing plant

The first plant to treat UG2 ore on its own was commissioned atWestern Platinum Mine in 1984 (Brugman, 1985). Typically, concentrate containing -300 to 400 g/t PGE+Au and -3% Cr203 (Vermaak, 1995) is produced from UG2 ore by means of multistage size reduction and froth flotation. This concentrate is subjected to matte smelting, followed by a

    PROCESS AND ASSET MONITORING AT A PGM

    The concentrator studied processes ore from the UG2 platinum reef only – ore from the Merensky and UG2 reefs differ significantly in terms of mineralogy, therefore the focus is on UG2. UG2 ore has a higher chromite content, resulting in processing challenges, but can also contain higher concentrations of platinum group metals (PGMs)

    The sulphide grains of UG2 ore are generally finer than those of the Merensky Reef. Merensky ore contains much more sulphide than does the UG2 ore, and the minerals are found in a silicate substrate, while UG2 ore has a chromite matrix.

Except for the UG1, the Upper Critical Zone chromitites are generally embedded in pyroxenite (locally they are underlain by anorthosite). The one that hosts the UG2 is ≈25 m thick and is hereafter referred to as the UG2 pyroxenite. Fig. 2
