Innovative Mining Solution Finalist: Rockwell Automation

Rockwell Automation has joined forces with Manta Controls to achieve operational stability on a closed-loop single-stage SAG mill at Western Australia's Gold Fields St Ives gold mine and as such, is a finalist in the 5th Annual Australian Mining Prospect Awards.

Rockwell Automation has joined forces with Manta Controls to achieve operational stability on a closed-loop single-stage SAG mill at Western Australia’s Gold Fields St Ives gold mine.

Developed on the Rockwell Automation ControlLogix plant automation platform, the SAG mill’s new control system uses an innovative alternative to the traditional expert system.

Manta Controls ‘Manta Cube’ accurately monitors and responds to the dynamic behaviour and multi-variable nature of the SAG mill and its associated processing circuit.

To make this happen, Manta Controls has taken advantage of the unique advanced process control functionality of the mill’s existing ControlLogix platform.
