Metals Processing


Consulmet designs, constructs, operates and maintains:

All of our plants are designed and fabricated in-house before being trial assembled prior to shipping.

Signature Metals Projects

Design and construction of a 130 tph iron ore beneficiation plant

Design and construction of a 100 tph nickel pre-concentrator

Design and construction of a 85 tph spiral separator and flotation circuit

Design and construction of a 300 tph copper pre-concentrator

DMS Pre-Concentrators

Consulmet has designed, built, operated and maintained pre-concentrators for base and precious metals, including antimony, chromite and ferrochrome, copper, gold, lead, lithium, manganese, nickel, tin, tungsten and zinc.  Our pre-concentrators incorporate our core technologies of Dense Media Separation (DMS) plants and spiral circuits.

All plants are offered on a turnkey, EPC, or BOOM/T basis.

Gold, Silver & Copper Plants

Consulmet can design and build a flowsheet to process alluvial, oxide and sulphide deposits.  Our key technologies include:

Iron Ore Beneficiation Plants

Consulmet has considerable expertise in the design and operation of beneficiation plants for hematite and magnetite ores in Australia and Africa.  We can design and build a process flowsheet to ensure maximum upgrade of your iron ore.

Flotation Plants

Consulmet has designed and built flotation circuits for platinum (PGMs), magnetite, chromite, gold and copper plants.

Spiral Circuits

Consulmet has developed in-house standard designs for single and multi-stage spiral circuits (currently up to seven stages).  We have designed and built spiral plants for iron ore, coal, copper, mineral sands, chromite and ferrochrome.  Plants are available in various formats up to 500 tph.
