Hamid .R. Manouchehri

Northland OreTech AB – (Consulting Company)
Adjunct Professor - Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering, University of British Columbia
hmanouchehri@yahoo.com; hmanouch@mail.ubc.ca; northlandoretech@bahnhof.se;
Hamid Reza Manouchehri holds a PhD in mineral processing with Mining Engineering background, having 30+ years experiences in both industry and academia worldwide.
He has extensive experience, knowledge, and expertise in mining (exploration and extraction), minerals and metallurgical processing including comminution, sorting, physical separation, flotation, and extractive metallurgy as well as solid and water wastes management and recycling, feasibility studies for industrial projects. Other expertise include:

 

• Process design, optimization, plant layout,
• Designing and conducting technological tests in laboratory and pilot scales to prove the conceptual plant design and also improve recovery and efficiency in practices
• Collecting, evaluating and interpretating of the acquired information/data to ensure process integrity based on designed criteria, technically and economically.
• Strong capability to forecast the future and making strategy to implement the new technologies in a safe, secure and economically viable manner(s) and combine old and new technologies/processes

 

 

His areas of interest are: Mining Exploration (geophysics and geochemistry), Mining Exploitation and Planning, Drilling, Geo-metallurgy, Sorting in mining and mineral processing (both particles and bulk sorting), Comminution (crushing and milling) Minerals Engineering, Minerals’ Flotation, Water recycling/treatment and management in plant practices, Physical Separation (i.e., Electrical Separation, Magnetic and Eddy-Current, and Gravity Separations, Waste Utilization and Recycling and Management, Minerals Economy, Beneficiation of Industrial Minerals
Hamid worked for different companies and research centers worldwide, including SWERIM (Swedish Research Institute for Mining, Metallurgy and Materials), Sandvik Rock Processing, Boliden Minerals, Ian Wark Research Institute (Australia), Swedish Kaolin, Eriez Magnetics (USA), etc. He also contributed and worked extensively on different mining, mineral and metallurgical processing, and waste management projects for different international mining companies, including Anglo American Platinum, Lundin, Vale (former Inco), BHP, EraMet, CSIRO, Freeport, etc.
Hamid is author of more than 60 papers published in international mineral and metallurgical journals and proceedings of international conferences. He has completed a number of technical reports (more than 70) for different mining and metallurgical companies worldwide.
Hamid is member of editorial boards for two prestigious and quality journals, i.e., Mining, Minerals and Exploration Journal (SME Journal) and Mineral Processing and Extractive Metallurgy Review.
