Ngezi Platinum Mine Mining Brief Introduction

Located about 150km southwest of Harare, Ngezi is Zimbabwe’s principal platinum-group metals producer. Ore reserves at Ngezi lie at a depth of between 20m and 50m below surface. After waste stripping, production mining is carried out in 3m-high benches within the 20m to 50m depth zone, with the waste rock being backfilled and worked-out areas rehabilitated on a continuous basis.

During open pit mining, run-of-mine ore is crushed to minus-300mm, with a 20,000t stockpile after its drilling, blasting, loading and rock hauling operations within the pit. And it is ground in NFLG ball mill before flash flotation to recover a coarse, high-grade primary concentrate, followed by regrinding, and rougher and scavenger flotation.

For ore crushing and grinding, you can choose NFLG as the top choice who will provide you with best price and high quality. Also, NFLG can offer you with complete crushing plant with both stationary and mobile crushing station.

150TPH ~ 200TPH Crushing line

Here you may be interested in our ore crushing plant with capacity of 150 tph – 200 tph. This plant is specially designed for small scale mining crushing project. There are also some large scale crushing plant which will be designed by our experienced engineers according to your requirements

Although the whole process seems simple, the machines we have selected are all kind of higher models. Among these, we have adopted HPC series cone crusher for hard rocks’ secondary and tertiary crushing. Since the HPC series cone crusher is designed by using advanced hydraulic technology, it will greatly reduce energy waste and improve project’s capacity. To get three kinds of finished products, we have used three-layer vibrating screen .

Mining was Zimbabwe’s leading industry

Mining was Zimbabwe’s leading industry in 2002, contributing 27% of export trade. The chief minerals were coal, gold, copper, nickel, tin, and clay, and Zimbabwe was a world leader in the production of lithium minerals, chrysotile asbestos, and ferrochromium, with more than half of the world’s known chromium reserves. Zimbabwe was self-sufficient in most minerals, producing 35 commodities from 1,000 mines, mostly small, and exporting 90% of its mineral output. The total value of mineral production exceeded $500 million per year, and the mining sector employed 60,000 people in formal operations; another 100,000–300,000 were thought to be informally employed intermittently in panning for gold. Of total exports of $1.92 billion in 1999, mineral and manufactured metal exports accounted for $550.8 million, down from $736.6 million in 1995.
