Marc Grondin’s upcoming short course Understanding the Basic Mineral Processing Flowsheet is designed to provide those new to the topic with an overall understanding of a typical copper/gold mineral processing circuit. This includes the basic concepts and principles, and an explanation of the operation of the major components likely to be used in such a process, from crushing and grinding to concentration by flotation.
This 2-day short course will be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada on June 19 & 20, 2014. For more info or to register, see the course page.
There’s still time to register for the upcoming webcast, Advanced Tailings and Mine Waste Facility Design, Construction, Operation, and Closure. This webcast draws on 2013 and 2014 publications and conferences to address the production, transport, distribution, and management of tailings. The major sections include consideration of the total life-cycle management of: conventional tailings, thickened and paste tailings, and filtered tailings. Presenters Jack Caldwell, Ian Hutchison, Lawrence Charlebois, Robert Cooke, and Christian Kujawa have reviewed and revised the course material so that, even if you have attended previous webcasts on this topic, the new agenda, approach, and information will ensure that you develop new insights into the state-of-practice in tailings facility management.
This three-session webcast will be held 29 April – 1 May 2014, from 8:00 am to 11:30 am Pacific Daylight Time each day. For more details or to register, see the course page.
