Introduction and Overview

The Weba Chute Systems custom design approach has seen clients grow from strength to strength in their mining operations. Tati Nickel near Francistown, Botswana, has grown from a small, underground mining operation to a large-scale open pit operation with conventional wet concentration.

With two operating mines (Selkirk and Phoenix), the production is earmarked to double, and Tati Nickel intends on producing 320 000 tonnes of nickel concentrate per year. The 28 chutes installed by Weba Chute Systems support these production outputs by ensuring that material transfer is not inhibited through blockages and spillage.

The 18 chutes we have successfully installed at the Nkomati mine near Machadodorp ensure that the underground shaft and open-pit mining operations operate at an optimum level without material blockages, spillage, or excessive maintenance down time.
