Copper

Copper preconcentration using highly scaleable, robust process technologies.

Commodity

Copper producers are increasingly looking to preconcentration to maximise concentrator throughputs and revenues. Our range of DMS, optical sorting, and spiral concentrator/separator modules are ideally suited to performing this duty reliably and cost effectively at high tonnages.

Complete process plants

We can provide a complete processing solution for copper from full scale production plants to pilot and demonstration plants. Sample Consulmet plants include:

→ Kamfundwa Copper
→ ENRC Copper
