EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The short course will present essential statistical tools which are helpful for metallurgists. The course will develop applied knowledge of statistics through many practical examples for mineral processing engineers. The short course is designed in four modules to explain the basics of statistics in module one and the main statistical tools used in technical studies and plant trials by metallurgists in modules two and three. Module four will focus on key aspects of regression, which is important for establishing relationships between observation and measurements.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This short course covers all the basics. Therefore, this course could be beneficial for both junior and senior metallurgists and students at various levels. The short course will provide metallurgists and laboratory technicians with a basic understanding of statistics and statistical analysis. This will allow metallurgists and laboratory technicians to use statistical tools and methods in their daily work and ensure their studies and trials follows a sound statistical approach.

A practical approach is taken when covering all the topics in the short course, with a number of practical examples and hands-on examples for attendees to ensure effective delivery of course materials. The prerequisites for attendees are engineering degrees and experience in metallurgical processes (comminution, flotation, dewatering, etc.).

CASE STUDIES

- Gold assay variation in Muck pile
- Haulage Trucks load variation
- Cyclone slurry pump failures
- Investigating flotation chemical trials, etc.
