The Nokansaz mine has a well established milling section for producing all range of products for mainly or the local construction market.
The ore-body being mined is a metamorphosed limestone which characteristically has a low silica (SiO2) and a high calcium carbonate (CaCO3) content. Mine’s topography is flat varying between 900metrs and 920metres above mean sea level.
Current life of the mine is well in excess of 30 years. The mining is performed according to standard opencast principles. The beneficiation plant has a capacity of 400 00 tons per annum
The product range for the operation is centered on the milling operation which supplies bulk powders to all sectors. The powder, having a low silica content and the chemical composition allows it also to be used in certain agricultural applications.
The final product composition is ideally suited to be utilised in the clean air and water initiatives that are currently being introduced.
According to the mechanical and chemical tests performed on the basalt samples, this basalt can be used for multiple projects. Mechanical and chemical test results are available on the below links. For more information please contact our marketing department on the below links
