The construction of FPT, which is the largest cemented full plant in South Africa, at Gold Fields’ South Deep gold mine, is nearing the end of full commissioning which is almost 20 years after the backfill operations
It is said that the application of backfilling has been through three stages, owing to the various mining methods which have been used during the development of the mine to date. And These advanced mining methods have required the adaption of the backfill type and system to keep pace with production levels and geological structures.
There are three backfilling application stages comprise the backfilling of the new twin shaft pillar area, followed by cyclone classified tailings backfill for the narrow tabular stopes as well as some larger stopes, and finally, de-stress and long hole mining backfill to suit present-day requirements.
FPT plant makes provision for all gold plant tailings to be supplied to the new backfill plant for FPT backfill manufacturing, with a provision for excess tailings to be transferred back to the gold plant for disposal in the tailings dam should the backfill plant be unavailable.
The whole fulfilling plant demand a series of high efficient facilities and among those the sand stone making production line is the most important. As the basic materials of concrete, cement mortar of architectural sand, Successful application of artificial sand is an indisputable fact that a large number of engineering practices has demonstrated the possibility and necessity of using sand. The sand production line consists by vibrating feeder, jaw crusher, sand making machine, vibrating screen and belt conveyor and other mining equipment.
According to different process requirements, various types of mining equipment can be combined to meet the technological requirements of different customers. So remember our brand—zhengzhou dingsheng ,and we can try your best to meet your demand.
