Commissioning MagotteauxMill® at GSL

Grant Small of Magotteaux has been training GSL on the newly installed MagotteauxMill® in our laboratories in Tresillian, Cornwall, UK.

The Magotteaux Mill® is a laboratory mill designed to reproduce the pulp chemical conditions of the plant grinding mill in the laboratory. It allows the user to investigate the impact of grinding chemistry on their metallurgical process.

The product generated in the laboratory that has nominally the same physical properties (particle size distribution) and pulp chemical properties (Eh, pH, dissolved oxygen, oxygen demand and EDTA extractable iron) as an equivalent sample taken from the plant. This signifies a distinct advantage in testing as the results produced in the laboratory are now more representative of those that would be observed in a plant.
