Speaker:  Dr Nick Clarke, Principal, Imtech Pty Ltd

Abstract: Current flash flotation test techniques are targeted at operating plants.  A laboratory batch test technique for greenfields operations was developed and will be described.  Finding geometallurgical relationships to proxy data is often difficult and relationships mediocre.  A slightly unusual method was followed to select samples for geomet testing and may have helped in developing exceptionally strong predictive relationships for almost all metallurgical parameters.
