Abstract
Practical Mineral Processing and Extraction Workshop provide a concise and thorough overview of extractive metallurgy as it is applied in industry today. It provides an overview of the processing and extraction challenges and provides answers to these challenges. The primary objective of this workshop is to discuss current techniques and future trends in the area of mineral processing and metal extraction. This is an important and growing area, yet there are few practical and up-to-date workshops that devoted to this purpose. This workshop not only discusses the different techniques available for mineral processing and metal extraction, but it also provides attendees sound information on plant optimisation and cost reduction.

Excel VBA For Engineers — “Advanced Excel VBA For Engineers and Scientists” Short Course
ID
885331
Dates
26 Jun 2017 - 27 Jun 2017
Location
Vancouver, Canada
Abstract
More than 90% of quantitative professionals (inclusive of Engineers, scientists and analysts) use Excel at a basic level. Yet possibly less than 10% would have received any guidance on how to use Excel effectively. Hence many professionals use Excel in a manner that much of their work is not shared effectively with their colleagues leading to a significant loss in productivity.

Indeed there are ‘Horror stories’ where poor Excel management has lead to millions of dollars in direct losses through wholesale loss of data and models.

The course focuses on providing a strategy to ensure that Excel is used efficiently. At the end of the course participants will be invited to estimate the efficiency gain that is provided by using the strategies of the course.

Uranium Processing — “Uranium Ore Processing” Short Course
ID
885437
Dates
18 Sep 2017 - 19 Sep 2017
Location
Vancouver, Canada
Abstract
Uranium is known to occur in over 200 different minerals but most of these do not occur in deposits of sufficient grade to warrant economic extraction. Uranium ore can be extracted by open pit, underground or in-situ mining methods. Uranium mill process flowsheets and unit operations for yellow cake production vary based on chemical and mineralogical characteristics of the ore to be processed. Ore characteristics are a particularly important component of the understanding the process development. Numerous other factors such as geology, radiation safety, economics, geography, environment, and regulations can change the uranium ore processing technology selection criteria.

Gold Processing — “Gold Ore Processing” Short Course
ID
885412
Dates
21 Sep 2017 - 22 Sep 2017
Location
Vancouver, Canada
Abstract
Gold is among the first metals used by man because it naturally occurs in its native state. Over the years different process flowsheets have been developed with the purpose of optimising gold extraction from a particular feed material using the most appropriate technology. Due to numerous factors ranging from technical e.g. geological, mineralogical, metallurgical and economical to non-technical such as geographical, environmental and political, diverse industrial flowsheet for gold production have been developed in different part of the world.

Water & Waste Water Treatment — “Water Treatment & Management in Mining and Mineral Processing” Short Course
ID
885410
Dates
25 Sep 2017 - 26 Sep 2017
Location
Vancouver, Canada
Abstract
Water is fundamental to mining and mineral industry and widely used for processing and treatment, heating, cooling, dust suppression, etc. Managing water and effluent discharge quality throughout the mine life is key to efficient mining and has a big role in mining environmental impact and footprint.

Treatment technologies often must deal with regulatory requirements, environmental sensitivity, social issues and conflicts and there are risks associated with each option. Mining companies must treat wastewater to highest standards, need to recycle and have commitment to sustainable water use.

In this course we introduce participants the basic concepts of available technologies and operations involved in treatment and managing water and waste water in mining and mineral industries.

Metallurgical Testwork — “Metallurgical Testwork, Interpretation & Process Design” Short Course
ID
885391
Dates
19 Oct 2017 - 20 Oct 2017
Location
Vancouver, Canada
Abstract
The metallurgical testwork program is generally the most important critical path item for process design of a circuit and if it is not implemented in a well-structured and framed way by an experienced subject matter expert it can become the main reason of a mining project fatal flow. Not two ore bodies are the same. Although development of a suitable process flowsheet to treat an orebody appears to be a relatively straightforward, selecting the optimum process whilst maintaining the maximum recovery and revenue is a complex task. Aspects of metallurgical test program ranging from initial sample selection and ore characterisation to understand metallurgical response of an ore to complex pilot tests. It is necessary to develop metallurgical testplan that can cater for the variability in the orebody, whilst still providing optimum economics on the majority of the process plant feed.
