Eddy Pump is excited to announce its new deal with Barrick Gold Corporation, one of the largest gold mining companies in the world. Together, Eddy Pump and Barrick will be creating solutions for their large gold mining operation in Papa New Guinea.
The contract we recently entered is the first of a series of equipment and support deals. The mine we are working with is one of the most productive and largest golds mines in the world.
This mine is one of the largest in “Papua New Guinea and is regarded as one of the world’s top ten producing gold mines. In 2009 it produced 572,595 ounces of gold and 94,764 ounces of silver and had 2,500 employees and 500 contractors. Since it began operating, the mine has produced more than 16 million ounces of gold and almost 3 million ounces of silver, accounting for about 12 percent of Papua New Guinea’s total exports. The mine′s proven and probable mineral reserves as of 2009 amount to 8.1 million ounces of gold.” Wikipedia
The main unit will be a large Excavator Dredge Pump Attachment. It will be used to pump mine tailings from an open pit, with the goal of dewatering. If you have questions about pumping thin fine tailings (TFT) or other tailings, contact us.
