Kibali Gold Mine increases output with Osborn Crushing Stations

A significant export order for jaw crushers and apron feeders for Kibali Gold Mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been awarded to Osborn by Randgold Resources.

Export sales manager Joe Sequeira says that the company netted this order for two 42” x 48” single toggle jaw crushers and two 1.8m x 5m apron feeders based on the proven track record of Osborn’s robust machines in similar underground applications.

Shining Diamond producer opts for Osborn Crushers

A R6-million order awarded to Osborn for new crushers, including a modular jaw crusher plant, reflects the continued success of Botswana’s Karowe diamond mine, where a number of exceptional diamond recoveries have made headlines, as well as the outstanding quality and reputation of Osborn machines.

Karowe is the flagship of Lucara Diamond Corporation, which reported the recovery this month (August) of “a spectacular Type IIa 336 carat diamond”, as well as a further three exceptional diamonds: a 184 carat stone, a 94 carat and a 86 carat stone. A 12 carat pale pink diamond was also recovered. The new Osborn machines form part of an expansion project at Karowe, reports East Africa Area Manager Chris Slade.
