Diamond Sorter Replacement in Northwest Territories, Canada
Halyard completed the detailed design and tie-in planning for the integration of two TOMRA COM 300 XRT diamond sorting machines at Burgundy Diamond Mines’ Ekati Mine in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The two TOMRA machines replaced a single-existing Ultrasort machine in the recovery plant for the purposes of recovering small diamonds.
Halyard provided multidisciplinary engineering services as well as oversight of supply and installation, and on-site commissioning support services.
The successful installation and commissioning of the Ore Sorters has led to improved diamond recoveries and reliability in the plant.
