Mintap was proud to have sponsored the 2016 WASM Wombats Mining Team who recently competed at the 38th International Collegiate Mining Competition. The two Open Division (Men’s) teams achieved first and second place overall respectively, with the Mixed Division team achieving 8th place out of 16 teams; a very respectable achievement given the high standard of competition. Well done to all.





The CSS Measurement Device, The C-Gap is now available in South America through San Cristobal (www.invsancristobal.cl) located in Santiago, Chile. They have been busy marketing and trialling two C-Gaps at mines and quarries in Chile and will be making representation across the continent at sites and conferences. For any South American mining or quarrying operators who are keen to know more about The C-Gap, please contact either Gerhard or Diego (contact details below) or click here to view a presentation.

C-Gap was successfully trialled at Codelco’s Chuquicamata Copper Project

Through Mintap’s South American distributor San Cristobal, the C-Gap was successfully trialled at Codelco’s Chuquicamata Copper Project. Lead weights were being used to measure the CSS in their 10 secondary and 5 tertiary crushers. Measurements were taken three times per day across all crushers equating to the use of 90 lead weights per day at approximately USD 2/weight. A cost benefit analysis of the cost of the C-Gap Vs lead weights clearly demonstrated that the C-Gap was the cheapest to operate with the added bonus of ease of use and the marked reduction of lead that needed to be disposed of. Noting its success on the Secondary and Tertiary circuit, a 30m hose and a 200-220mm sensor will be introduced on the primary crushing circuit shortly in order to improve the management of the CSS upfront.
