About Gekko Systems

Gekko was co-founded in 1996 by husband and wife team, Sandy Gray and Elizabeth Lewis-Gray, in Avoca, Victoria, Australia.

Gekko started out producing InLine Pressure Jigs for continuous gravity separation. Yet growing demand for energy-efficient devices spurred Gekko to re-invent and advance traditional processing flowsheets.

Innovative modular designs, elegant systems and smart manufacturing launched Gekko as a world technical leader in gold processing and low-energy mining solutions.
