Webinar series: Sustainable & Profitable Mineral Processing

Introducing a new webinar series on Sustainable & Profitable Mineral Processing.

In the wake of the COVID-19 almost all tradeshows and conferences have been either canceled or postponed. We are here to continue supporting our customers in these challenging times, so we hope you find these webinars from our top experts of value and relevance to your operations. 

Please find below the calendar of upcoming and on-demand webinars, with the relevant registration link to the BrightTalk platform. An online (one -time) registration is required. Each webinar is recorded and available on-demand after the live webinar session.

The list of webinars will continue to be expanded.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Practical solutions for mine tailings and water - part 2

Dry stacking successes?

  • Water efficiency is not the only driver for dry stacking. Several gold producers are implementing dry stacking, for example in Artic environments (where the sites are water positive) to minimise environmental impact and the risk of tails spills. Climatic conditions change some of the stacking logistics. We look at some of the more recent mine sites to embrace filtered tailings
  • Combining mine backfill and dry stacking is an attractive option for some sites, how to balance the demands of different systems.
  • Reliability focus on critical tailings filtration infrastructure, in dry stack operations maintenance can be a labour-intensive operation and good planning is essential to achieve the best availability and keep control of costs

Water stewardship. Quantity and Quality – part 3
  • Water stewardship is about using water in a socially equitable, environmentally sustainable, and economically beneficial way. Legislators are pushing greater transparency of use and the effluent limits in some countries are dropping to almost unmeasurable limits.
  • Looking beyond Water availability and security, what quality should our water have to optimise the returns it provides in processing?  On return of water to the environment how can we assure the next user is better off? What actions can we take to reduce our impact of this valuable resource?

Geometallurgy: a key to the optimization of the mining value chain
  • The optimization of the minerals value chain towards more economically and environmentally sustainable operations requires a holistic approach. The concept is based on value creation over the whole mining and mineral processing chain.
  • During this webinar we will discuss how geometallurgy provides a structured approach to evaluate, develop and manage mineral resource projects through all phases from exploration to the final product. We will be sharing example cases on optimizing projects from technical, economic and environmental points of views.

(morning session)
Minimizing Soluble Gold Losses with Continuous Management of Activated Carbon
  • To optimize the gold leaching process and minimize soluble gold losses, one should actively manage the amount of activated carbon in the reactors by controlling the carbon pumping. However, one cannot control what one cannot measure, and therefore some means of analyzing the carbon concentration in each tank is needed.
  • The traditional method of manual sampling and laboratory analysis is too slow, prone to significant errors and infrequent to be useful in continuous carbon management. We’ll introduce Outotec’s in-situ carbon concentration measurement – CarbonSense – and discuss control strategies for efficient carbon management

Sydney AEST 4:00pm 

Innovations in gold leaching and plant control
  • To obtain maximum returns from gold leaching, it is necessary to ensure tight control of a range of factors, including grind size, reagent addition, carbon management, and leaching conditions.
  • The feed mineralogy to the CIL/CIP circuit can change with time, so plant design should be flexible to accommodate the changing mineralogy.
  • We will discuss various technologies and process design options for variable ore feeds to maximise gold recovery, plus benefits such as reduced power and reagents.

Key steps to optmize maintenance of your flotation circuit
  • In most mining operations, achieving and/or exceeding production targets is an important measure of success.
  • Equipment availability and efficiency greatly contributes to these targets, with best performance obtained through routine preventative maintenance. 
  • This webinar focuses on flotation, where we share sites with good maintenance practices and associated revenue benefits. 
  • We also identify the equipment that requires routine maintenance, plus recommended inspection practices.

Advantages and limitations of HD paste - part 1

  • Most sites operate their thickeners trying to maintain a balance between water recovery, overflow clarity and flocculant consumption.  When managing a HD (high density) paste facility, the demands for underflow density are unrelenting.
  • The advantages of HD paste are not always obvious, and we look at quantifying the direct and indirect benefits.
  • No analysis of benefits is ever useful unless the disadvantages are evaluated, and we take a quick look at some of the negatives
