WEBINAR: A Cooperative Research Centre for Transformations in Mining Economies: So what?

3 April 2020 9:00am10:00am
In March 2020 the Federal Government announced a new $130 million Cooperative Research Centre on Transformations in Mining Economies (CRC TiME). The University of Queensland, through the Sustainable Minerals Institute, led the development of this cooperative research centre in partnership with The University of Western Australia.
This presentation will outline: the basic components of CRC TiME; the game changing value proposition which positions the mining industry as an agent of regional development; and the unique partnership that has drawn in mining companies, technology and service suppliers, state and local governments and groups representative of regional and community interests.

Webinar: On-belt bulk analysis - latest applications and development

27 March 2020 9:00am10:00am
Real time measurement is essential for improved plant control. Bulk ore sorting is automated grade control between the mine and mill and sensing data can be used concurrently for multiple purposes (ore blending, diversion, reconciliation, metal accounting, feed forward control, etc).

Webinar: Climate change mitigation in mining

20 March 2020 9:00am10:00am
Climate change accountability plays a critical role in ensuring the security of the future of minerals supply. Mining has an important position in enabling our modern lifestyle and the development of infrastructure for green technologies; and, therefore, it is important to acknowledge and point out the risk of climate change on mining infrastructure. A comprehensive carbon accounting framework, that takes into consideration all mitigation opportunities, is required to implement climate change mitigation strategies within mining supply chain.

Trials, tribulations and occasional successes of commercialising innovative mineral processing technologies

13 March 2020 9:00am10:00am
There are a host of non-technical issues that need to be addressed in order to successfully commercialise technology in the resources industry. Today we will talk about a range of actions which can greatly assist your technology to be implemented in industry.

Investigating the effect of process water salinity on the flotation performance – ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih case study

6 March 2020 9:00am10:00am
Process water can potentially be reused in flotation, particularly in the reverse cationic flotation of magnetite concentrates – the Kryvyi Rih (Ukraine) case study concludes that unwanted silica content reporting to the magnetite concentrate during reverse flotation can significantly be restricted following the proposed methodology for reusing process water.

Learnings from the Brumadinho Tailings Dam I Failure

28 February 2020 9:00am10:00am
Tailings dam failures are unfortunately common, with recent failures having catastrophic consequences in terms of loss of life and environmental damage. David will present an overview of recent dam failures, technical causes and new methods of monitoring, failure prediction and closure practices that will reduce the frequency of tailings dams failures in the future.
