Most facilities include multiple unit operations to enrich and refine the valuable materials and then treat the tailings before disposal. Many common fundamental mass transport and separations technologies are incorporated, some chemical and some physical in nature (size reduction, floatation, magnetic separation, roasting, leaching, selective precipitation, ion exchange, solvent extraction). In addition to the core process, utilities optimization and well-engineered stream recycling can often make the difference between a profitable or unprofitable facility.
Here at PROCESS, we provide metals and minerals processing solutions to support your operations. We design the process from the fundamentals up and utilize the expertise of our client and specialized equipment manufacturers as needed to help ensure the process we design will perform at an optimum level.
