Reclaiming material from Tailing Ponds to recover Platinum Group Metals (PGM)


At the beginning of 2020, ELB Equipment, Telestack’s longstanding and esteemed dealer delivered a Hopper Feeder HF10T to JPN Kruger who are one of the most respected names in the earthmoving, construction, mining and quarrying services industry in South Africa.

JPN Kruger have been a loyal customer of ELBs for over 20 years and have purchased over 15 x ELB supplied Telestack units so they knew the value that Telestack and ELB could bring to this application.

The HF 10T Hopper Feeder, TC424X Track Conveyor and HF 521 Hopper Feeder are being used in a reclaiming application, where material is being reclaimed from old former tailing ponds and brought to a process plant to recover the Platinum Group Metals (PGM). The PGM’s being reclaimed are Ruthenium, Rhodium, Palladium, Osmium, Iridium and Platinum.
