Mineral Processing

Mineral handling and ore processing is a vital phase of any mining operation. Once extracted, the ore must be transported to the processing plant undamaged. Given the delicate nature of mineral deposits and the financial risk associated with its safe transit, this is a process fraught with challenges. The equipment used during this part of mining processing can mean the difference between success and failure, so operators are demanding increasingly more effective and efficient technology that allows them to further drive down costs and optimize all important metals production.

This chapter will focus on the various logistical hurdles that operators must overcome in transforming the extracted raw material into tradable produce. Leading service providers will showcase the new technology improving mineral handling processes, from advanced filter systems and conveyor belts to pipe technology and reactors, and explain how operators can make savings on energy usage, time and equipment maintenance.
