The workshop will provide delegates with the tools to identify opportunities for improving energy efficiency within both existing and future plants. In addition to reviewing energy accounting strategies, the 1-day session will cover specific energy-saving techniques in key areas such as blasting, coarse and fine size reduction and separation, as well as the use of geo-metallurgical techniques and process modelling to mitigate the impact of ore-body variability.
Important technical areas covered:
- Smart blasting
- Mine-to-mill analysis
- Gangue rejection and pre-concentration flow sheets
- Gravity separation and flotation technologies
- Coarse mineral liberation
- Critical test work fundamentals
