Alluvial Diamond Processing Plant

Alluvial Diamond Deposit

Roughly 49% of diamonds originate from Central and Southern Africa, although significant sources of the mineral have been discovered in Canada, India, Russia, Brazil, and Australia. They are mined from kimberlite and lamproite volcanic pipes, which can bring diamond crystals, originating from deep within the Earth where high pressures and temperatures enable them to form, to the surface. Alluvial diamond deposits are found on the Atlantic coast of South Africa and Namibia, as well as in some riverbeds in Angola, Sierra Leone, Congo, Central African Republic, Guinea, Ghana, Liberia, Tanzania, Togo, Brazil, Venezuela, Guyana and South Africa.

Alluvial Diamond Mining Equipment

Alluvial diamond mining is characterised by high investment, strict regulations, government investment and is conducted by formal mining companies. Industrial alluvial mining requires a considerable amount of overburden material to be removed first to get to the gravel bed underneath, where diamonds are found. When diamonds are found on the ocean shore or on riverbeds, the gravel is removed and then taken to a plant where it is washed and screened for diamonds. CME provides complete series of alluvial diamond processing plant and mining equipment for sale.

For diamonds that are found offshore, i.e. on the ocean bed, specially constructed ships suck the gravel from the ocean floor before it is transported to land and on to the plants for screening. All the gravel and sand that is removed is specially treated and then reused in many different ways, such as replacing it to help rehabilitation in the area.

Alluvial Diamond Processing Plant

Alluvial diamond deposits are generally extracted by drilling and blasting and then are conveyed to the processing operations. Techniques used for processing vary with the properties and location of the deposit. Alluvial diamond rocessing operations may include crushing, screening, size classification, material handling and storage operations etc.
