    Cobalt and HREE Minerals Systems in the Eastern Mount Isa Block

    26 July 2019 9:00am10:00am
    A study of Co-rich samples from the Eastern Mount Isa Block was undertaken to constrain the IOCG mineral system and evaluate HREE prospectivity. Although these deposits are interpreted to have had a granitic source, the element association includes metals not normally concentrated in silicic melts e.g., Co, Ni, Sc and PGE's.

    Project Derisking through metallurgical testing

    14 June 2019 9:00am10:00am
    Metallurgical testing is critical to a minerals project development. There are some key questions that need to be answered at each stage of a project from Scoping, to Prefeasibility and to Detailed feasibility and a key component is the process parameters evaluated during metallurgical testing.

    The Extended Drop Weight Testing Approach – What it reveals

    7 June 2019 9:00am10:00am
    For decades the minerals industry has been challenged by inherent variability of ore deposits. Quantifying this characteristic of orebodies and estimating its impact on the process performance is becoming increasingly important because the mining industry needs to extract resources with lower grades and more complexities.

    A data driven approach to social license

    31 May 2019 9:00am10:00am
    A decade of research on the nature of relationships between communities and the mining companies that work alongside them, has demonstrated that community acceptance, or social licence, depends on deeper trust in their relationships

    Real-time process improvement through advanced instrumentation and control strategies

    24 May 2019 9:00am10:00am
    With the decline of in-house expertise, in both the research organisations and end users of technology, Clarity bridges the implementation gap of new technologies and industry solutions.

    Understanding the margins - Application of energy at the EHM Concentrator

    17 May 2019 9:00am10:00am
    Utilisation of a processing asset extends beyond the number of hours it runs for. When mines start to approach the end of their life, significant redundant capacity opens up in the mines processing assets. Is this capacity really redundant or can we re-think our approach to keep them delivering value at the design rate?

    Complex Orebodies - the story so far

    10 May 2019 9:00am10:00am
    The Complex Orebodies program has now been going for 15 months. The program has the aim of identifying the challenges and solutions related to responsible unlocking of Complex Orebodies - orebodies which are currently inaccessible due to complexities across the range of Social, Environmental, Governance and Technical areas. This presentation will provide an update on the overall program, its performance against the original objectives, and future plans.

    Applying Integrated Process Knowledge to viable recovery of complex orebodies

    3 May 2019 9:00am10:00am
    The seminar is linked to the risk factors preventing the utilisation of 75% of the world's large known copper resources.  A picture will be painted of how being able to link the processing route to the knowledge of primary rock properties can enable modelling, and therefore risk reduction and potential acceptance by the industry, of dramatically different approaches to the mining process.  Linking technical understanding to mapping routes that can dramatically change social benefit, environmental impact, water and energy usage, tailing and waste management, and long-term society benefit from mineral resources.

    Processing Iron Oxide Copper Gold Uranium Ore

    12 April 2019 9:00am10:00am
    Iron oxide copper gold uranium ore is an important source of metal for Australia. Processing of IOCG-U ore is complex due to sequential separations resulting in multiple products and the need to carefully consider the deportment of radioactive elements. ‘For the process to be effective, geologists mineral processors pyro and hydro-metallurgists must work together.’

    Pyrite types and their effect on flotation electrochemistry

    5 April 2019 9:00am10:00am
    Pyrite is one of the most important minerals in the beneficiation of gold, platinum group metals, and base metals such as copper. However, “pyrite, is not pyrite, is not pyrite”. Many types of pyrite exist, with a high level of variability between them. Identifying different pyrite types within ores and understanding their properties has enormous benefits towards improving the flotation process.
