Agnew Gold Mine
Northern Goldfields, Western Australia
Como Engineers were engaged by Goldfields Australia to remove their existing vertical combustion type regeneration kiln and retrofit to the kiln hopper structure a new structure complete with 250 Kg/hr Como/Custom Furnaces horizontal carbon regeneration system, quench tank and carbon conditioning system.
The system included a 4 tonne pressurised AS1210 carbon quench tank with automated detection for high-level water and carbon, enabling automated transfer of the carbon to the CIL on reaching its fill level.
The system integrated to their onsite Citect system but also had a stand-alone Allen Bradley Compactlogix PLC.
