SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - 06/02/2011) - Sunergy, Inc (the
- News) is pleased to announce that it has purchased an iCON SB 150 Enhanced Gravity Concentrator and a No.6 Deister Vibrating Concentrating Table through RMS Ross Corporation in Chilliwack, BC, Canada. Both pieces are new and cost a total of just over $50,000 US. Scott Plummer of RMS Ross, serves on our Advisory Board.
The iCON SB Enhanced Gravity Concentrator (Approx. cost $15,000US)is used prior to feeding the concentrate to the table for finishing. The iCON Concentrator is designed to capture all heavy minerals including Gold, Silver REE's and PGMs . It uses a centrifugal field to concentrate very fine, free minerals that are not recoverable using the traditional techniques of small scale and artisanal miners. The technology is based on the batch-type Falcon Concentrator and designed by the same Falcon engineers that design concentrators for the largest mines in the world. In operation, material is fed as a slurry of minerals and water into a rotating bowl that includes special fluidized grooves or riffles to capture the heavies at a rate of up to 2 tons/hour. Periodically, a rich concentrate is rinsed out and requires further upgrading (tabling) to be turned into a final gold product.
iCON is supported by governments around the world due to its ability to recover gold without the use of mercury, cyanide and other toxic chemicals. iCON was designed for the United Nations Global Mercury Project to bring professional techniques to small miners throughout the world.

The Deister table (approx.$35,000US) is a classic industry standard used in major mining operations worldwide to separate the available free gold contained in a concentrate as well as to enable separation of various different specific gravity materials from each other in one single simple gravity recovery operation. The concentrates as separated are collected in separate containers which results in an immediate upgrade of the initial concentrate. The table will handle approximately 1 ton/hour of feed in a 25% slurry.

Bryan Miller, President comments: "Establishing our new processing facility is an important next step to optimizing cash flow from our Pampana operations. We are producing as much black sand concentrate as possible during the operating season and will begin processing as soon as this equipment arrives. Our secure facility will insure integrity during the primary recovery operations. We are also currently planning expanding our ground operations to include another valuable readily marketable product in addition to our Pampana Rare Earths."
