Edenville secures wash plant an crusher for Rukwa

By BFN News | 09:14 AM | Thursday 23 February, 2017

Edenville Energy has secured a coal washing plant and crusher in anticipation of starting production at its Rukwa coal project in western Tanzania. Edenville said: "The wash plant is based on a dense medium separation system, a well known and trusted method to wash and beneficiate coal. "This will enable several different product specifications to be produced to allow the maximum flexibility in providing a suitable product for customers." Edenville said the wash plant had been inspected and reviewed by an independent process engineering consultant and was selected after extensive evaluation of alternative options. It is modular in structure and can be transported to site in containerised form and will be assembled at a suitable location close to the Rukwa coal deposit. Edenville said: "Assuming the resolutions are passed at the company's forthcoming general meeting on 17 March 2017, we expect to complete the purchase of the wash plant as soon as possible thereafter, at which point the shipping and assembly processes can start." In addition to the wash plant, the company has secured a suitable coal crusher plant to prepare and size the run of mine coal. It is planned that this crusher will be shipped to site at the same time as the wash plant. Edenville said it recognised it needed expert professional input into the construction and operation of the wash plant and had appointed a qualified engineer with significant experience of both construction and operation of these types of plants. It said the engineer had already begun work on the necessary requirements for shipment and construction. Chief executive Rufus Short said: "We are very pleased to announce this next phase in the development of the mining operations. "The wash plant is an integral part of the process to maximise the Rukwa coal deposit's potential and we are confident we have selected a suitable system. "Additionally, having an engineer who has extensive experience with these types of plants give us the added confidence that the construction and commissioning can be well managed. "We believe our coal wash plant will be the only such facility operating commercially in Tanzania and will place us in a strong position. "We have significant interest in our coal from several different parties and the wash plant will enable the operation to deliver a consistent specified product to the local and regional market."
