The mining industry in Zimbabwe is a significant contributor to the country's economy. The mining industry in Zimbabwe accounts for over 60% of exports in the country. Having a terrain that is quite similar to Australia and Canada, the country is a producer of many minerals and metals. Zimbabwe is particularly known for its resources of platinum group of mineralsas well as nickel, gold, diamonds and others.
Zimbabwe’s mining industry is focused on a diverse range of small to medium mining operations. The most important minerals produced by Zimbabwe include gold, asbestos, chromite, coal and base metals. The mining industry contributes approximately 8% towards the country’s GDP.
The first step of the mining and mineral processing operations is to remove the mineral value in ore from the host rock or matrix. Minerals may be extracted from the earth using a variety of techniques. Most extraction processes result in the removal of ore and associated rock or matrix in bulkform from the deposit, using blasting and crushing operations to break the ore into pieces of manageable size or to separate the ore minerals from unwanted material.
Mining operation involves many different types of machines. As referred, there are many small and medium mining operations in Zimbabwe; mining technology is still in developing. It requires high technology and quality mining equipment to develop mining industry in Zimbabwe. Crusher machine is one of integral equipment in mining industry. SBM provides high performance and low price crusher for mining industry in Zimbabwe.
Different scale of mining operations has various investment capacities and requires different types of mining machines.In mining operation, crushing is the first the integral operation, the layout of mineral crushing plants is a crucial factor in meeting production requirements while keeping capital and operational costs to a minimum.
There are many factors to be considered for designing a reasonable crushing plant, such as ore characteristics, mineral deposit location, climatic conditions, expected operational life, safety, environment, and operability and maintainability. There are three main steps in designing a good crushing plant: process design, equipment selection, and layout.
With the development of quarrying and mining industries, various new types of mining equipment are designed for different applications. Nowadays, tracked mobile mineral crushing equipment has been gradually replaced stationary crushing plants.The main benefits of mobile crushing plants is their optimized flexibility, maximized productivity and minimized operating costs,meantime increasing safety and reducing environmental impact.
