Overview: This online course introduces participants to the basic concepts of Geometallurgy and Mine to Mill methodologies and highlights the value of orebody knowledge in viewing mining operations as integrated systems.

Key aspects of geometallurgy are introduced in the course, including:

  • What is geometallurgy?
  • Geometallurgy in industry
  • Practical geometallurgy – strategies for sampling a deposit
  • Characterising rock at different scales – macro, meso and micro
  • Orebody knowledge – analytical techniques from macro to micro
  • Small-scale tests to assess process response

The Mine to Mill module introduces the following topics:

  • Orebody knowledge for mine to mill optimisation
  • Measurement tools and techniques
  • Modelling Mine to Mill in the value chain
  • Applying Mine to Mill in industry - case study examples
  • A live interactive workshop, working with real data.

The course is delivered in a flexible online format, combining self-paced learning over a 3 week period via recorded presentations and a live interactive Mine to Mill workshop via Zoom, working hands-on with real-world data.
