A Partner Represented by Mining Salons is Selected As One of the 12 Semi-Finalists in the Crush It! Challenge

We are proud to share with you that a partner represented by Mining Salons is selected as one of the 12 Semi-Finalists in the Crush It! Challenge which is organized by Natural Resources Canada to encourage Canadian innovators to develop new, clean technologies for crushing mined rock.

As semi-finalists, our team was invited to take part in a pitch session chaired by the Minister of Natural Resources on March 3, 2019 held on the margins of the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada’s (PDAC) annual Convention in Toronto. The Challenge Jury will be evaluating semi-finalists technical presentations in order to select the six finalists who will be awarded contribution agreements of up to $800,000 and compete for the grand price of $5M.

In addition, we have also been allotted space at the Canada Pavilion (on the PDAC trade show floor) and, we will attend the exclusive #DisruptMining event and dinner.

Looking forward to meeting you all at PDAC, and telling you more about our award-winning solution!


General Kinematics Two-Mass Screen Applications

The General Kinematics Two-Mass Screen technology is gaining global momentum in the Mining Industry. They have been and currently are the leader in Vibrating technology for over fifty years in the Foundry and other industries. Two-Mass screens are high throughput screens that can handle up to a 30% - 40% throughput increase with the same or better efficiency (in the same footprint as an existing brute force banana screen) and on an equal comparison basis. The GK screen can use much less energy to do this bigger task, they are inherently more reliable, and they offer a longer service life for a lower cost of ownership. Additionally, the preferred OEM states the inclusion of their short integral cascading grizzly feed deck will produce even higher performance and efficiency gains. The preferred OEM of this technology has produced Two-Mass screens for decades. In 2005, this OEM redesigned their Two-Mass screens into a modular configuration in response to demand for higher throughput screens. There are over one hundred of these new style large screens currently in service.
