Mineral Processing

Applying automated mineralogy data to improve plant performance and drive continuous process improvement.

Until recently, the optimization of plant parameters has been based mainly on correlation with assay data. Now, regular monitoring of plant performance at different locations in the stream allows for the separation of ore variability and plant parameters from the recovery story. In leaching operations, the optimization of the leaching process directly impacts profitability both in terms of reagent use and target recovery.

ZEISS has developed a high throughput, site-based automated mineralogy capability. This provides a complete mineral processing solution to address plant monitoring and troubleshooting with fast turnaround

  • Troubleshoot mineral processing plant performance by systematically sampling and analyzing multiple size fractions and locations in the plant
  • Build up a wealth of data on average plant performance through dedicated monitoring and trending of mineralogy, association, liberation and recovery of target material
  • Implement data-driven process improvements at the plant through daily plant monitoring data

Due to the volume of ore being processed in modern mining operations, incremental improvements in target mineral recovery can provide immediate impact to the bottom line. Understanding the parameters that affect mineral recovery in the plant is critical to maximizing the profitability of an operation.
