Matt Pyle has 10 years’ experience in the design, operation and optimisation of minerals, base metal and precious metal processing plants. His experience spans all project stages from testwork management, concept level designs, and due diligence through to detailed design, commissioning, operations and optimisation. His core interests include novel technologies and flowsheets, bulk and particle sorting, coarse particle flotation, high capacity tailings filtration, business case assessments and ‘mine of the future’ approaches to process control, automation and continuous improvement.

‘Enhanced Process Technologies’ (EPT’s) can provide genuine step change improvements to greenfield and brownfield projects. However, the technical answer is only part of the solution. This presentation discusses EPTs, barriers to adoption and how to navigate those barriers in order to improve economic and environmental outcomes.
