Our material handling engineers and designers provide innovative material handling solutions and a complete range of services for all types and sizes of conveyors, crushing/screening stations, storage systems and stacking systems to improve production and efficiency, and optimise your resources.
We provide material handling solutions for surface and underground mines, including crushing plants, overland conveyors, stockpiles/silos, storage/reclaim facilities, ports, shiploaders, and a complete range of stacking systems for ore, waste, tailings and minerals.
Our subsidiary, Terra Nova Technologies (TNT) is a recognised supplier of innovative bulk material handling systems that focus on three main areas.
Crushing and stacking of materials includes gyratories, jaws, secondary and tertiary cone crushers, and sizers – complete plants or mobile systems to reduce materials to a size that can be conveyed and/or processed. Once sized, whether it be ores, waste rock or filtered tailings, TNT has developed and installed over 75 stacking systems worldwide, from the very small 300 tonnes per hour (t/h) gold heap leach utilising 'grasshopper' portables, to the largest stacking systems available for capacities greater than 10,000 t/h using their patented Super Portable® technology.
Overland conveyors have become longer, higher capacity and capable of incorporating vertical and horizontal curves, regenerative capability, and operating in series over very long distances. This overland technology is a major focus of many mining customers attempting to lower the haulage cost component of their mines.
In-pit crushing and conveying (IPCC) systems and other technology are used to convey from shovel to point of use. The combination of very flexible/mobile Super Portable® conveyors linked to very large transportable ex-pit conveyors and overland conveyors allows for the reduction of haulage costs and improvements in productivity required by many operations.
We develop dynamic simulation models to mimic complex systems with variability considerations that help identify best design and operations improvement. Our models help demonstrate how a proposed or existing system will behave under certain conditions, which helps you make better-informed business decisions and optimises performance to maximise value generation.
TNT’s Super Portable System Technology is the result of years of innovative design work and a decade of system installations around the world that have revolutionised stacking systems. It allows fully independent movement of each piece of mobile conveying equipment on the stacking pad. This patented mobile stacking technology reduces scheduled down time and increases system mobility and operational flexibility.
