Min-Met Modular Diamond Processing Plant:

Wet processing plants for diamond mining operations

We supply a range of equipment that can be applied in diamond mining operations.


The process begins with the screening of your feed material to remove the minus 6mm fraction while the 6mm to 100mm material is delivered to the scrubbing phase. The material is subjected to severe attrition to break down clay contamination and remove organic material and other lightweights from your feed material.


Wastewater from the screening and fines management phase is delivered to the primary water treatment phase where 90% of process water is recirculated to your processing plant, minimizing the volumes of fresh water required. The settled sludge from this stage can then be delivered to a tailings waste management plant which will eliminate the requirement for tailings dams. Auto-sorters are then employed to offer improved diamond recovery at high throughput rates. Following this a Pan Recovery step may be introduced depending on the specific characteristics of your material.


Our unique approach to the design and delivery of your diamond processing plant has a number of key advantages:


We tailor to your requirements – a tailored turnkey processing system built according to your feed material, your final product specifications and your capacity requirements.

Modularity – Our systems are designed as modular components or individual building blocks to ensure a synergy is created between all individual pieces of equipment.

Durability – our use of the highest quality components maximizes plant productivity, availability and plant life.

Ease of maintenance – maximizing plant production by making maintenance access as easy as possible, guaranteeing the safety of your site personnel.

Process control – we will design, install and commission your plant and ensure the efficient integration of all the required equipment to deliver maximum plant efficiency.

Energy Efficient Design – Full electric power for a cleaner, quieter and safer site.
