VAST-Resources-Successful-Cu-Zn-Separation
PROJECT DESCRIPTION Vast Resources PLC’s wholly owned Manaila polymetallic mine is situated in Suceava County, northern Romania. Economic mineralisation is comprised of copper, lead, zinc, gold and silver. Ore is mined from the Manaila open pit and trucked to the processing plant located in the town of Iacobeni. The plant consists of crushing, ball milling, flotation and concentrate filtration circuits. Manaila historically produced a single copper concentrate with gold credits. Vast were unable to effectively Read More / Download PDF
September-2018-Platinum-Cost-Curves
Notes: All-in Sustainable Cost (“AISC”) includes cash cost incurred at each processing stage, from mining through to recoverable metal delivered to market inclusive of royalties and production taxes, sustaining and reserve development capital expenditure, corporate general and administrative costs, reclamation and remediation costs and sustaining exploration and study costs. Minxcon also investigated AISC excluding capital costs incurred (sustaining and reserve development). Platinum producers report costs in a variety of ways.

March-2018-Kellgold-Refractory-Gold-Processing
KellGold utilises commercially proven unit operations and learnings from processing of PGM concentrates through the Kell Process. The following benefits could be realised for KellGold (Adams, et al., 2015):- • No constraints on flotation concentrate grades or impurities which could increase float mass pull and recoveries; • Cyanide free gold recovery which negates the need to destroy the cyanide in tailings streams – some countries ban the use of cyanide altogether; • Reduced water usage, Read More / Download PDF
October-2017--Mining-Method-Selection
Selecting a mining method is one of the most critical and problematic activities of mining engineering. The ultimate goal of the mining method is to maximise the profit and extraction of the mineral resources while providing a safe working environment. The selection of the mining method is a complex task considering many technical, economic, human and historical factors. Analysing all these factors will assist in identifying the appropriate mining method that is technically feasible for Read More / Download PDF

Rubicon Mine Dumps

  The Desert Lion Energy Lithium Project is located in the mining-friendly jurisdiction of Erongo, Namibia. The project is situated on open semi-arid, scarcely populated lands, approximately 120 km to the north-west of Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia. The site is 30 km south-east of Karabib, providing proximity to excellent infrastructure. This mine was first discovered in the 1930s and has a long history of small-scale mining operations. Massive volumes of dumps from the Read More / Download PDF
June-2016-Who-needs-Geology
Very often Companies are faced with budgetary constraints. This results in placing pressure on the time spent on generating Mineral Resource models. Technical Reports often vividly describe a projects’ geological location and the mineralisation mechanisms that have been interpreted to occur. However, seldom do these characteristics get fully imparted on the end Mineral Resource result, resulting in poor Mineral Reserving outputs. Consulting companies often receive Mineral Resource models for review or updating and are readily Read More / Download PDF
May-2017--Gold-Cost-Curves
Industry cost curves are valuable tools to benchmark the operational cost performance of an existing operation or new proposed mine project against industry. The industry cost curve indicates the ability of the existing mines to endure cyclical commodity prices and ensure continuous mining operations over time. This measure of a mine’s cash margin per ounce can also be a useful tool for the following:- – Use as a Comparison tool; – Use as an Analytical Read More / Download PDF

Dec-2016-What-on-Earth-are-Rare-Earths
The term “rare” in reference to rare earth elements (“REEs”) is not strictly correct and stems from the early 1950s. The complexity of REE ores and elements made the separate economic extraction of individual elements more difficult and costly. Some of the elements are relatively abundant in the earth’s crust but the economic extraction is often not possible. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry defines REEs as the 15 Lanthanide elements plus Scandium Read More / Download PDF
