Understanding Mineral processing for Non-Metallurgists. 12 March in Perth.
Presenter: Dr Leon Lorenzen – Executive Consultant
This 1-day course has been designed for engineers, geologists, mineralogists, environmental scientists, plant operators, marketers, financial advisors and those either dealing with mineral processing (extractive metallurgy) or wanting a better understanding of the principles of extractive metallurgy.
The course explores principles of geology, mineralogy, chemistry, mineral processing and economics as they apply to mineral processing unit operations and explains in simple terms, from how metal is geologically detected, extracted from various rocks and minerals to the final metal product. It provides an overview of extractive metallurgical principles in the design and operation of process plants and also discusses issues such as metallurgical testwork, metallurgical accounting, environmental management and other common aspects of practical extractive metallurgy.
