|Current Flotation'17 sponsors|
Thursday, 5 January 2017
I am pleased to welcome a new sponsor to Flotation '17, and a fairly new company, Woodgrove Technologies of Canada, established only in 2009, but continuing the mandate of their previous company, Minnovex, in providing innovative, technologically advanced products for the mineral processing industry.
Prior to selling to SGS Canada in 2005, Minnovex carried out work in over 30 countries, with offices in five countries. The company specialised in research, development and implementation of technological advances in the mining industry for froth flotation, comminution, geometallurgical modeling and advanced process control. In the discipline of froth flotation, hundreds of flotation projects were carried out including on-site and off-site pilot plant work, flotation computer modelling and geometallurgy, benchmarking, flowsheet development, trouble shooting, advanced process control, and supply and start-up of full scale column cells and feed slurry aeration flotation equipment around the world.
In 2016 Woodgrove merged with Portage Technologies, combining two synergistic partners. Portage Technologies was established in 2010, focused on plant intelligence in the mining / mineral processing industry.
We look forward to introducing this dynamic new company to the flotation series in Cape Town in November.
