Cliffs Natural Resources Purchases SPMNA Multi-Slope Banana Screen

Schenck Process Mining, North America has completed the sale of (1) SLD 3061, 10 x 20 double deck, multi-slope (banana) screen to a new client, Cliffs Natural Resources, formerly known as Cleveland Cliffs, Inc. The term banana screen refers to the angles of the deck surfaces and the attitude that is presented to the ore material being fed onto the screen. It is inclined at the feed end and gradually changes angle presentation throughout the deck surface total length on the machine. This advanced design will provide Cliffs Natural Resources with increased efficiency in screening and increased throughput per screen surface, in contrast to conventional methods of flat surface screens placed in inclined positions.

Cliffs Natural Resources, Cleveland, Ohio is the largest iron ore pellets producer in North America, with six iron ore mines and two coking coal mining complexes. Although North America is their primary business focus, they are a global producer of iron ore with business units or partnerships in Australia and South America. (NYSE: CLF) Cliffs Natural Resources acquired 100% ownership of the former PinnOak/US Steel Mining operations of Pinnacle & Green Ridge Coal Mines in West Virginia and the Oakgrove Mine in Alabama in 2008. Combined estimated production of premium coking coal from these facilities is in excess of six million tons per year.
