In September 2020, Institute TOMS was given the latest accreditation certificates by Glencore Technology (Australia) for running UFG testing in a stirred mill – IsaMill M4.
In August 2020, Institute TOMS (Irkutsk) in partnership with Thrane Teknikk initiated testing of a fine screening technology using Derrick Stack Sizer 2SG 48-60R-1STK by Derrick Corporation.
On the 12th of May 2020, Institute TOMS received an official confirmation from JK Tech Pty that the testwork quality and the personnel competencies are in conformity with high international standards.
In June 2020, a new up-to-date laser particle size analyzer Malvern Mastersizer was installed and put into operation in Institute TOMS.
In March 2020, engineers of Institute Toms and Köppern met in Irkutsk to exchange about the challenges in iron ore concentrate re-grinding with HPGR and to perform a collaborative test work series on iron ore concentrate.
Institute TOMS accomplished the geo-metallurgical mapping of Vernenskoye deposit ores
Institute TOMS accomplished the geo-metallurgical mapping of Vernenskoye deposit ores to be mined in 2020-2030 years. Based on this mapping a pilot geo-metallurgical block model was developed allowing for operational analytical relationships between process recovery values and physical-mechanical properties of the ores, on the one hand, and material characteristics of chemical and mineral compositions, on the other hand.
The gold deposit Vernenskoye occurs in the central and the most developed area of Bodaibo District of Irkutsk Region where its main infrastructure, many active placer and several ore deposits are located.
