Diagnósticos Mineralógicos-ENG (1)INTRODUCTION

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 & base metals.
  • 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.
