Description

About the Course

In this introductory course, students explore the science behind the processes used in today's mineral processing industry. The concepts of reaction kinetics are introduced and applied to the chemistry and physics in mineral processing operations.

With ever more difficult ores to process, we bring a new approach to mineral processing by focusing on understanding the consistency of science at the molecular level. This course explores the improved use of old techniques and development of new ones will advance the industry into the 21st century.​

Students will leave this course with a solid grasp of reaction kinetics concepts such as surface charge, reaction selectivity, application characteristics of soluble and insoluble reagents, equilibrium, chemical dispersion characteristics, and practices that will help them troubleshoot and improve mineral processing operations and increase plant efficiency.


About the Audience

This course is for individuals interested in the science behind mineral processing operations.

Examples of those who may be interested include: mineral processors, metallurgists, mineral processing researchers, engineers, and plant managers.


Recommended Background

This is an introductory level course. We recommend a university level of chemistry taught to engineers and an understanding of engineering mathematics. For an introduction to the mining industry and terminology, we recommend “What is Mining”
