Gravity Mining Ltd. is a Cornish based mineral processing equipment manufacturer specialising in enhanced gravity mineral separation with its patented technology for fine-grained mineral recovery.
The brainchild of Cornish engineer, Treve Mildren, who, when working on an antiquated design of a multi-gravity separator concept in the 1990s, determined that by modernising the technology, he could deliver a game changing solution.
The Gravity Mining team pioneered new prototypes in the Camborne Royal School of Mines to validate high yield recovery rates in sub-70 micron mineral fractions.
Historically, processing lines at mine sites struggle to mechanically retrieve metal in small fraction sizes and this is a major issue for resource stewardship in countries where artisanal mining counts for a large proportion of mine activity, such as in East Africa.
Artisanal miners often use antiquated techniques which, according to some statistics, can leave behind more than 80% of the target minerals as waste, depleting national reserves into uneconomical mine sites decades ahead of what they are capable of producing.
Gravity Mining has quickly become recognised for its breakthrough PureSelectTM technology and its machines which it exports for use in the mining of tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold, chrome and various other minerals in fine-grained form.
The PureSelectTM technology gives us a substantial advantage in upstream operations across a wide range of minor metals and rare earths. It also provides powerful environmental protection by reducing fine particulate pollutants in waterways.
In-house testing capabilities allow us to test and optimise mineral processing circuits for a wide range of mining operations and clients.

With critical metals being both complex and of a niche market nature, the economics have often deterred mainstream financiers and natural resources companies who cite, fairly, a lack of critical mass or margin.
Yet, the same companies would concede that without supply chain stability within these metals, the bigger picture of a global migration away from fossil fuels is impossible.
The solution? Improve the economics through innovation and strategic focus.
And, we have done just that.
Developing proprietary mineral processing and refining technology and established our own, in-house, supply chain, we have created a new commercial reality which is both economically and environmentally sustainable and ethical.
