Minerals

Artika Resources focuses on mineral resource acquisition and operation of mining and beneficiation plants. Our area of interest is the extraction of valuable minerals from ores to produce key elements and metals. We focus on both greenfield and brownfields operations. We invest in resource operations where we identify that our team can add value, by jointly and/or exclusively managing the operations.

Prospecting & Exploration

Prospecting & Exploration

Artika Resources’ prospecting and exploration team focuses on finding mineral resources in South Africa and Africa which can be extracted to produce valuable minerals. Artika Resources prioritizes minerals reserves which can be extracted profitably and sustainably and therefore provides a long term mining operation.

Our team consists of professionals with more than 40 years’ combined experience in geology, exploration and geophysical disciplines.

Technology

Technology

Artika Resources’ has a dedicated team of engineers with an objective to improve metallurgical processing plants to achieve the following objectives.

  – Lower Operating Costs (R/ton)
  – Higher Production (Yield, Recovery & Efficiency)
  – Lower maintenance costs

Artika resources is using in-house built software coupled with discrete element modelling to achieve these objectives. Artika resources applies geometallurgical principles, conduct plant audits, feed material test work and process plant modelling to achieve customised process improvements.

Our digital twin platform: Captures and integrates real time data and makes use of big data analytics to deliver metallurgical value. Displays information on a Digital Twin Platform to enable quick decision making. 

We specialize in the followings fields of engineering: 

Mining, Mineral Processing, Pyrometallurgy & Hydrometallurgy

Marketing

Marketing

We sell mineral commodities that we mine and produce ourselves. But through our marketing business, we also source from an extensive base of third-party commodity suppliers, in countries all over the world.

Sustainability & Upgrades

Sustainability & Upgrades

As mine head grades decline and orebodies become more complex, traditional mineral processing techniques and flowsheets to achieve saleable concentrate become more difficult to design and construct. Mines with lower quality concentrates or concentrates with penalty elements are particular under threat. The economics of these operations are far more susceptible to metal price, concentrate treatment terms and the availability of other, cleaner concentrates. Additional value may be realised for these orebodies through improved recovery by producing a low grade middling concentrate for further processing, in conjunction with a saleable concentrate.

It is important for businesses that intend to engage in the reprocessing of tailings dumps to determine the economic viability of their mineral assets. In order to estimate Mineral Resources for a tailings dump a comprehensive technical study must be undertaken to assess the quantity and quality of the tailings material and demonstrate reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction as required
