BlueRock set to process weathered kimberlite in SA

13 march 2014

BlueRock Diamonds is this month expected to start processing weathered kimberlite material from its Kareevlei tenement, in South Africa.
The Kareevlei project contains five diamondiferous kimberlite pipes and has an inferred mineral resource of 359,000 carats.
It had excavated about 70,000 t of the tenement’s calcrete overburden from the north-west side of the Kareevlei K1 and K2 pipes, with weathered kimberlite having been encountered at lower levels although diluted with calcretised kimberlite as was expected, reports Mining Weekly.
BlueRock also said that following the refurbishment and commissioning of the dense media-separation processing plant, which commenced last December, more work was required to improve the crushing circuits to boost the front-end plant capacity.
Mining Weekly reports that this work was finished two months ago and the plant had since then been able to operate for a sustained period above the expected 25 t/h rate.
“Accordingly, it remains the board’s expectation that the operational capacity of 12,000 t/m is achievable using the existing plant during the trial mining phase, [while] the final recovery plant has also been recommissioned successfully,” said BlueRock.
