TOMRA’s XRT technology: a game-changer at Letšeng Diamond Mine in Lesotho

TOMRA’S XRT sensor-based sorting technology unlocks significant value for Gem Diamonds at its Letšeng Diamond Mine in Lesotho.

It delivered an effective solution for coarse fractions in historical tailings dumps, recovering 15 times the initial investment in 4 years.

This success has led to the installation of the first TOMRA Final Recovery sorter in the world, now in its final commissioning stage.

Projects to further upgrade the mine’s Recovery Plant with more TOMRA XRT sorters are in the pipeline.

TOMRA Mining’s ore sorting technology unlocks value from contaminated material at Mt Cattlin Lithium mine
The Mt Cattlin mine, owned by Galaxy Resources Ltd (part of the Allkem group of companies), is located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. The open pit mine produces high-quality spodumene concentrate for the global lithium market. The demand for this commodity is ballooning due to the role of lithium and lithium-ion batteries in mobile devices and in electric vehicles (EV), as manufacturers vie for leadership in the EV race. With supply struggling to keep up, lithium prices are expected to be strong for years to come. Further reading
