New Gold gets jiggy with Gekko

Gekko will install a pre-concentration jig at New Gold's New Afton project

The Canadian miner has guided production of 6-16% less copper at New Afton in 2018, year-on-year (from 41,276 tonnes), saying the improvement in recoveries would only "partially offset" lower throughput.
