Innovative New Gold Mining Methods With Mobile Gold Mining Equipment

The purpose of this document is to outline a suggested mineral processing plan based upon the utilization of the gsi mobilemax mobile gold processing plants.The mobilemax 7500's have an average processing capability of 3.4 metric tons per hour.The mobilemax mobile processing plants are developed to operate 24 hours per day solely off of a sustainable and battery backup energy source integrated into each plant.This mineral processing plan is designed to provide the necessary information to estimate energy costs, processing capabilities, equipment required and processing high availability.Energy systems the mobilemax energy systems are developed to provide power for the following processes; • power the high efficient baldor ½ hp motors that power the linear motion of the tables • power the water pumps utilized for the gold concentration process • power the gold vacuum driven collection system • power the led operational lighting system • power the energy management and diagnostics including the laptop computer • power optional security camera systems and visual data logging standby energy supply & fuel consumption as a standby and additional field power source, the mobilemax processing plant has a 7kva kubota diesel generator tied into the power system with automatic switch gear.The automatic switchgear will initiate a generator startup upon a low voltage battery condition that can be caused by a component failure.The generator at 60% load will utilize 1.5 liters per hour (based upon average field conditions).With the expanded double wall dot approved fuel cell the mobilemax processing plant has enough fuel for approximately 151 hours of operation.Energy components the energy equipment standard on all mobilemax systems includes 16 us made 300 watt high efficiency solar panels with sma inverters.Depending on site wind conditions, an optional tilt-up 2.5kw variable pitch wind turbine is installed at the front of the processing trailer.All energy harvesting and control equipment is mounted in the trailer enclosure at the front of the trailer.Each solar panel's health and output can be monitored from the laptop computer.Replacement parts & gsi reaction time common situations effecting remote mining operations are spare/replacement parts.Each mobilemax plant has a complete spare parts cache.Every factor that could shut down the processing plant has been taken into consideration and planned for.The spare parts included afford a backup for all critical systems and functions.The typical gsi response time for the shipment of a replacement part is within 24 hours via air transport to the closest major airport or desired location the client requests.The failed part is required for warranty credit.For an extended service contract, the response for a service engineer is within 72 hours (subject to flight availability and travel time).Under the gsi warranty, the customer is required to provide, airfare, airport pickup, safe transport, safe and reasonable lodging, and gsi personnel safety while they are performing work at the site.Plant setup & duration the mobilemax processing plants require less than 2 normal working days, under most conditions, to be setup and running.All connections and assemble points are color coded and numbered for a swift and simple assembly.Each processing plant includes additional hardware and a toolkit capable of servicing all gsi components important environmental conditions environmental/site/workforce conditions that could affect the mobilemax include; • setup over previously disturbed or high moisture count ground may cause the system to require a re-leveling condition | the mobilemax system will require stable virgin or compressed ground with a load bearing capacity of > 2500 psf.A simple thumb test can be performed to identify the ground support capability • improper operation | proper training and monitoring will be required to ensure the mobilemax system operates a peak performance • processing security, theft or damage due to attempted theft | the mobilemax systems are fitted with several levels of security measures to ensure a prompt site personnel reaction time and multi-levels of security.The levels of security include; • 3mm diamond plate aluminum surround for the enclosure • a double slide bar configuration 1 cm thick for the entry door with keyed high strength master locks in-addition to the standard door lock • an intrusion alarm with megaphone audible and automatically activated strobe lights • a triple locked 4mm thick steel lockbox for gold containment • a tamper proof global gsp tracking device • optional ip based security camera system with audio and night vision.All data is captured and stored in the provided asus laptop.Data logging must be removed on a periodical base due to hdd storage capacity.System operational safety the mobilemax processing plants are developed to conform or exceed all engineering, mechanical, and electrical safety standards.All moving parts are painted yellow.All pinch points are guarded and painted red.The supplied electrical components are ul approved (for north, central and south american markets) and are protected via a gfi supplied electrical system.Two push button e-stops located on each side of the trailer.The setup of the trailer requires a supplied copper grounding rod to be driven into the ground for the protection of a direct lightning hit in addition to supporting the proper grounding of the sustainable energy harvesting equipment.All electrical wiring is run through pvc conduit.All energy harvesting components are securely wall mounted and connections including wire are shielded from the accidental contact of a site worker.Multilingual advisory placards are strategically located to clearly indicate the potential hazard condition.All electrical components are double grounded.Each component is protected by a properly sized breaker system with matching wire size.Breaker panel is located within the trailer enclosure/lab.Full onsite training is available and supplemented by multilingual easy to read and understand booklets.For illiterate workers, one-on-one training must be provided.Material requirements the material to be processed must be crushed and classified to a size ranging for 150-200 mesh.The material size is very imports for the separation of precious metals form non-value minerals.If the ore material is of high sulfide count a pre-roasting condition may apply.Ferris based metals are captured and removed through a multi-level magnet system located in the feed shoot.Mobilemax system material loading the preferred loading method for the mobilemax processing plant is via the optional flexitube screw conveyor system.The flexitube conveyor system is a us made system that simplifies the loading process to the top row of tables.The hopper is located at ground level.The top row of tables is the starting point for the concentration process.The top row of tables can be manually loaded by site personal if site conditions require.There is a mid-level catwalk included to provide complete access.Suggested process flow/map every site has conditions that affect the method of processing the gold or other precious metal ore.Gsi can only recommend a suggested process map based upon optimum site conditions, unknown material hardness, efficiencies of non gsi equipment, and employee work training and efficiency.The suggested gsi process map is as follows; from the point of material extraction, a grinding method must be employed to reduce the size of material to an acceptable size of the gsi millmax ball mills.The size required is not to exceed the average size of ¾ chip gravel.This ensures the millmax products will operate peak efficiencies.The continuous flow millmax ball grinder is a two stage ball grinder mounted on a duel axle trailer.The pre crushed material is fed into a hopper at the tongue side of the trailer and flows through the ball mill with the assistance of water and gravity.The processing capable material flows out in a slurry mix at the proper size need to be loaded into the flexitube conveyor staged for loading into the mobilemax processing plant.The newly developed millmax continuous flow ball mills are offered as a diesel powered or sustainable energy powered self- contained mill.The containment and flow of the millmax processed material is recommended as follows; depending of the efficiency a containment pond for the pre-concentrated material may be needed.There are several variables that affect a ball mill grinder's throughput.The new millmax ball mill grinder will process 1.5 to 3 mtph (depending on material hardness).To meet each of the mobilemax systems throughput the operation of the grinder may need to be on a longer duration in-order to build a stockpile of process ready material.If the mining operation is to be 24 hours a day 2 millmax grinders will be required.The post ground material can be manually fed into the flexitube hopper or through an optional small conveyor system.For short term / duration mines gsi recommends a manual approach to reduce costs and energy requirements.The post-concentration material (tailings) can be directed to virtually any location on the mine through manual or automatic means.For "open sky" mines, gsi recommends the stockpiling of the tailings for the environmental purpose of filling the pit back in.Gsi also recommends mining companies perform random tailings testing via a small supplemental series of tables mounted on a trailer, or lab testing to ensure the complete capture of high value material.
