Ore characterization, process mineralogy and lab

Jun 01, 2014 1. Changes in mining and processing. The dramatically increasing cost in mining owing to rising water, power, reagent and steel prices, less favorable ore characteristics, lesser oxide ores and dominance of primary sulfide feeds coupled with economic aspects of sustainability require a large re-focus of operations on process mineralogy.

Operational Efficiency Forecasting Model of an Existing

Forecasting the operational efficiency of an existing underground mine plays an important role in strategic planning of production. Degree of Operating Leverage (DOL) is used to express the operational efficiency of production. The forecasting model should be able to involve common time horizon, taking the characteristics of the input variables that directly affect the value of DOL.
