Magnetic separation is a powerful tool for mineral processing, particularly with relatively recent technology developments such as super-powerful rare-earth magnets. Peacocke & Simpson employs a range of hand magnets of various intensities for simple separations and mass balances, and has a close working relationship with Eriez RSA for more complex needs.

Peacocke & Simpson believes that the force of magnetism has vast unexplored potential in the mineral industry, and is undertaking R&D projects for novel use of magnets in combination with other processing tools.
