Windimurra Vanadium Screening

After Primero’s successful completion of the Dry Screening Plant at Windimurra Vanadium in 2012, a new evolving project scope was triggered in March 2013 to push the front end beneficiation plant into sustainable production.

Primero formulated solutions for Windimurra’s development projects with a fast track, low cost approach. Solutions were implemented within weeks to allow major process changes to take effect and prove the concept for the permanent solution expenditure.

Scope of Work

Highlights included the installation of a mobile stacker conveyor and chutes to remove the HPGR product from the plant feed repulper and redirected to the dry screening plant. Following this, a 29m conveyor and chutes were designed and installed in place of the stacker within six weeks.

Another major installation was the design and install of a 20m conveyor to take all oversize material from two wet screens direct to the ball mill and removing the wet recirculating material from the dry crushing circuit completely. This was designed and installed within four weeks.

Primero undertook civil, structural, mechanical, piping and electrical design works as well as procurement, fabrication and site installation for over 80 projects, site wide while meeting budgets and schedules. A permanent team was based on site and Primero supplied large shutdown teams to deliver installations on schedule.
