Why recovery so important in mining?
- To maximize value from an ore body or a mining operation, recovery is one of the key drivers whether it’s for precious metals, base metals & energy metals along with iron and various non-metallic minerals like silica sand and carbonates from tailings.
- The challenge, however, is that this source of revenue is constantly under threat due to various challenges such as increasing ore complexity, high ore variability, operational inefficiencies and lack of technical know-how. Also, environmental regulations, shortage of water, water quality along with high cost of energy and consumables put additional constraints on operational costs and recovery.
What we will learn in the 2-Day Workshop?
- Learn the key concepts of Mill recovery (2 hr).
- Learn how to diagnose recovery problems in Mills (with case studies in various base metals and gold operations) (2 hr).
- Learn the basic principles in advanced processing with plant applications (2 hr) .
- Discuss case studies: Bring your operational problems and discuss potential solutions (4 hr).
- Conclusion: Challenge to improve recovery in your operation (2 hr).
