Process mineralogy combines mineralogical techniques with mineral process unit operations to identify minerals, their associations and characteristics in order to... establish feasibility concepts at the early stages of geological exploration; design processing flowsheets; specify raw materials and marketable products; troubleshoot plants; indicate new uses of minerals. Process Mineralogy 1 for Metals presents the basic tools of process mineralogy and their application primarily with respect to metals, illustrated by numerous examples. Topics covered include the following. Importance of process mineralogy for mining, mineral processing and metallurgy; definition of raw materials; different sources of raw materials; techniques used in process mineralogy; important mineralogical aspects for mineral concentration and leaching. Analytical techniques used in process mineralogy to identify and quantify minerals and for chemical analysis; principles of optical microscopy; use of the polarizing microscope to identify minerals; transmitted and reflected light. Quantitative mineralogical analysis using optical microscopy; point counting; degree of liberation by the Gaudin method; image analysis. Mineralogical analysis by x-ray diffraction; principles of x-ray generation and diffraction; quantitative XRD methods; use of x-ray fluorescence for chemical analysis. Electron microscopy; scanned and transmitted beams; interaction of electrons with matter; x-ray maps; identification of minerals. Quantitative mineralogical analysis using mineral separation; heavy liquid separation; density gradient; study of mineral liberation using heavy liquids and flotation; study of gold liberation. Quantitative mineralogical analysis based on chemical composition of minerals; mass balance techniques. Application of process mineralogy to coal and industrial minerals is covered in a companion course titled Process Mineralogy 2 for Coal and Industrial Minerals.

Process mineralogy combines mineralogical techniques with mineral process unit operations to identify minerals, their associations and characteristics in order to... establish feasibility concepts at the early stages of geological exploration; design processing flowsheets; specify raw materials and marketable products; troubleshoot plants; and indicate new uses of minerals. Process Mineralogy 2 for Coal and Industrial Minerals is the second of two courses on process mineralogy by the author. It presents application of the basic tools of investigative and analytical mineralogy with respect to coal and industrial minerals, illustrated by numerous examples, including... coal petrology; industrial minerals: diatomite, clay and calcium carbonate; and industrial minerals: structural clay, glass, cement and advanced ceramics. Together with the companion course, Process Mineralogy 1 for Metals (which also covers the investigative and analytical tools of process mineralogy), this course provides an excellent introduction to process mineralogy for all mining disciplines.

The Mill Operating Resource is even more than its name implies. As well as a resource for people who need to understand and operate the equipment used in mineral processing, it also provides the base knowledge required to understand new technology. While applications and materials are always evolving, the laws and principles that these are developed from are fixed. The author, in his spare time a writer and illustrator, has more than 30 years of experience supervising and directing mill operations in Canada. It is from this background and his own training needs that the resource has been developed. The resource is presented as a set of two courses ... The Mill Operating Resource - 1: Ore Preparation and - 2: Mineral Recovery. This course is a companion to The Mill Operating Resource - 2: Mineral Recovery and sets the stage by addressing feeders, conveyors, crushers, ore storage, grinding mills, and mill safety. If you are an operator and you are feeling challenged by the "why" of things or intimidated by technology, then certification in this course will give you the knowledge to fully participate in the technical workings of a mineral processing plant. The grounding you will receive in mechanical design, plant maintenance, electricity, metallurgy, hydrometallurgy, environmental monitoring, emergency response, instrumentation, safety, fire fighting, and regulatory constraints will enable you to recognize problems as they are developing, initiate the appropriate responses, and better understand new technologies as you encounter them. You will also have a better appreciation of your job requirements and be able to communicate more effectively with engineers and managers. If you are a manager, engineer, training supervisor, metallurgical technician, or front-line supervisor this resource is still for you! It provides practical knowledge, experience, and insight into how these multi-disciplinary processes work in practice and what to look out for when problems arise. But the greatest benefit of this resource derives from its value as a tool that can be used to enhance the productivity of your plant, and a platform from which to construct your own training curriculum. The resource provides a wealth of information that is missing from most in-house training programs. Most importantly, it provides knowledge continuity and standardized testing to aid in the evaluation and development of your operating personnel. The resource can also be used as a prerequisite to employment to ensure commitment and ability. Other advantages include: testing and certification, improved employee morale, increased safety awareness, improved circuit management, decrease in downtime and/or equipment damage, and increased understanding of technological change.
