IPJ Case Study
Fill in the form and press the submit button to get access to Gekko’s latest case study, ‘Recovering native copper at New Afton delivers recovery benefits’. This case study describes the benefits of the InLine Pressure Jig (IPJ) at the New Afton Copper Gold Mine (New Gold), located in Kamloops, British Columbia.
“The IPJs are removing native copper and gold from the circuit in line with the original design parameters. Once optimised the jigs require very little day to day operational input. They are producing higher copper and gold grade concentrates than design, consistently meeting the grade required for reporting to final concentrate.”

InLine Pressure Jig
Gekko’s founding product the InLine Pressure Jig (IPJ) uses traditional gravity separation jig concepts combined with today’s technology and design innovations.
Exceptional improvements to mine operating costs, process efficiencies and recoveries are achieved by pre-concentrating deposits using the IPJ.
The IPJ uses 20% less power, and consumes 90% less water, compared to traditional jigs. Saving water and reducing energy helps mine operations lower their environmental impacts and remain profitable.
