MDRU SC98: 4-day Geometallurgy Practical Short Course
Quantitative and spatially-constrained geometallurgy data characterize ore deposits to maximize the effectiveness of processing, including comminution, liberation, recovery and environmental management. Ideally, each block in a 3-D resource model is then attributed with multiple rock parameters and assigned a dollar value. This improved geometallurgical knowledge results in reduced technical risk, improved forecasting, economically optimized mineral production, and addresses environmental concerns.
Participants: Exploration and mine geologists, engineers and mineral processors
This four-day course comprises lectures, practical exercises, and a range of computer-based modelling exercises. The course content covers a variety of techniques to enhance information produced by geologists that is relevant to geometallurgical decision-making. The course emphasizes the use of tools to systematically collect and analyze data. Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to begin implementing geometallurgical data collection and analysis. The course is intended for exploration and mine geologists, engineers and mineral processors. Participants should be familiar with basic office software such as Excel and PowerPoint; other specialized software will be introduced.
