Lead & Zinc

Lead and zinc preconcentrators using DMS.

Commodity

Base metals ores typically contain high levels of low SG gangue minerals and after secondary or tertiary crushing the liberation is sufficient to achieve impressive separation outcomes using gravity processes, with DMS proving particularly useful.
