The optimization of the minerals value chain is a holistic approach towards more economically and environmentally sustainable operations.
The concept is based on value creation over the whole mining and mineral processing chain.
Ore to metals optimization combines the use of mineralogical data, geometallurgical modelling and powerful advanced process simulation from minerals to final payable metal. The optimization uses detailed geometallurgical characterization of the ore domains, and concentrator plant models integrated as a digital plant that simulates the kinetic behavior of mineral particles in beneficiation processes for each ore types and plant operating scenarios.
This interactive workshop provides insight into the advanced use of Outotec’s HSC Chemistry software modules with some hands-on practical case examples. These exercises include the use of the HSC Chemistry modules and mineral database that carry out functions such as; element-to-mineral conversion, and ore type-based concentrator simulations integrated with Net Smelter Return and Operating Cost calculations.
This workshop is limited to 30 participants, on a first come first serve basis.
