The Process Minerology online course is an introduction for metallurgists, mining and process engineers, and operators in the early stages of their career to useful process mineralogy tools and techniques.

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.
