Included in the course are strategies for selecting the most appropriate characterisation tools and assessing the quality of mineralogical data. Selected case studies and real data are used to demonstrate the benefits derived from appropriate mineralogical characterisation and show its applicability across the process chain.

Course Objectives

By the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the basic components of ores and the linkage between texture, liberation and processing options;
  • Understand the tools available for providing mineralogical data and their advantages and limitations;
  • Analyse and interpret mineralogical data in a processing context; and
  • Demonstrate the value of process mineralogy in plant diagnostics, troubleshooting and optimisation.
