AMTAS commenced operating as U.M.F. in Naval Base, Western Australia in 1982. At this time the Company was manufacturing Heavy Mineral Processing Equipment. This equipment included the unique ‘Russell’ Heavy mineral Jig (Gold Jig) and the BSP 10 Mobile Bulk Sampling Plant (Alluvial Gold Sample Plant). The BSP 10 went on to win the BHP Steel Award (Primary Industry Category) in 1987. This was followed by its inclusion in the international television series ‘Beyond 2000’.The product range at this time was aimed exclusively at the mining industry and also included gold mining, alluvial gold mining and processing equipment, gold jigs, scrubber trommels, alluvial sampling plants, alluvial gold plants, hoppers, feeders, conveyors and weighing systems.. The product range has diversified over the years to include components and plant for the materials handling industry relating to the manufacture and handling of fertilisers. These included fertiliser blending and loading equipment, weigh hoppers, weigh feeders, bucket elevators, blending screws, screen decks, shuttle conveyors, screw conveyors, container loaders and electrical control equipment.

Demountable diesel generator and electric main water pump with 30m of cable (complete with plug tops and sockets) for remote connection. See brochure.

BSP-10C 10 tonne per hour as per BSP-10 but with larger scrubber (1000mm diameter x 1700mm long) and fitted with Russell Jig model J2/6. Dual concentrate pumps and larger 200mm concentrator bowl secondaries. Heavier duty 6.0 tonne suspension and larger capacity water pump.

The Russell Jig incorporated in the BSP-2 and BSP-10 was originally designed as a Gold Jig in the 1970's on the Kanowna alluvial gold fields near Kalgoorlie in Western Australia and has unique design features that improve the recovery of fine gold. A very high displacement ratio (diaphragm area to screen area) allows the use of lead balls as "ragging" on the standard stainless steel screens. The ball diameter is matched perfectly to the screen aperture to create a very uniform, dense and compact bed. This combination will not allow particles of a lower SG (specific gravity) than the lead and sufficient size, to displace the lead and block the screen apertures. Keeping the screen clean allows the Jig to operate at maximum efficiency at all times. As gold has a much higher SG than lead it can displace it and be captured. The Russell Jig can also be used for the recovery of Platinum, Tin, Tantalum, Diamonds and Sapphires.
