Metallurgical Testwork — “Metallurgical Testwork, Interpretation & Process Design” Short Course
19 Oct 2017 - 20 Oct 2017 • Vancouver, Canada
Abstract:
The metallurgical testwork program is generally the most important critical path item for process design of a circuit and if it is not implemented in a well-structured and framed way by an experienced subject matter expert it can become the main reason of a mining project fatal flow. Not two ore bodies are the same. Although development of a suitable process flowsheet to treat an orebody appears to be a relatively straightforward, selecting the optimum process whilst maintaining the maximum recovery and revenue is a complex task. Aspects of metallurgical test program ranging from initial sample selection and ore characterisation to understand metallurgical response of an ore to complex pilot tests. It is necessary to develop metallurgical testplan that can cater for the variability in the orebody, whilst still providing optimum economics on the majority of the process plant feed.

Abstract:
Gold is among the first metals used by man because it naturally occurs in its native state. Over the years different process flowsheets have been developed with the purpose of optimising gold extraction from a particular feed material using the most appropriate technology. Due to numerous factors ranging from technical e.g. geological, mineralogical, metallurgical and economical to non-technical such as geographical, environmental and political, diverse industrial flowsheet for gold production have been developed in different part of the world.

Uranium Processing — “Uranium Ore Processing” Short Course
20 Nov 2017 - 21 Nov 2017 • Toronto, Canada
Abstract:
Uranium is known to occur in over 200 different minerals but most of these do not occur in deposits of sufficient grade to warrant economic extraction. Uranium ore can be extracted by open pit, underground or in-situ mining methods. Uranium mill process flowsheets and unit operations for yellow cake production vary based on chemical and mineralogical characteristics of the ore to be processed. Ore characteristics are a particularly important component of the understanding the process development. Numerous other factors such as geology, radiation safety, economics, geography, environment, and regulations can change the uranium ore processing technology selection criteria.

Sustainable Minerals '18
14 Jun 2018 - 15 Jun 2018 • Windhoek, Namibia
Abstract:
This, the 5th International Symposium on Sustainable Minerals '18, is organised by MEI in consultation with Prof Markus Reuter. The rapid growth of the world economy is straining the sustainable use of the Earth’s natural resources due to modern society’s extensive use of metals, materials and products. An astute and conscious application and use of metals, materials and products supported by the reuse and recycling of these materials and end-of-life products is imperative to the preservation of the Earth’s resources. The realisation of the ambitions of sustainable use of metals, materials and resources demands that the different disciplines of the material and consumer product system are connected and harmonised. This conference will discuss all aspects of material and metal usage.
