The objective of the course is to present the great opportunities that exist in the mining industry for the integration of data from mining dispatch systems, process control, laboratory, climate monitoring, and available mining and geo-metallurgical planning information. Participants will learn how to transform data into information for operational management. Classification, flotation and thickening grinding models that provide the knowledge for their analysis with operational data will be shown. Examples of industrial cases will also be shown. It is suggested that participants have the plant process diagrams available for block modeling for their management.
Our Coaching for the Digital age is not “information” – it’s “transformation.” It’s an experience that leads you through the process of finally changing your reality to match your vision. For many (perhaps for you), it will be the first time you’ve truly clarified your vision for creating value with operational data, events and process simulation. Dynamic Operational Management and Sustainability Strategy is the actual journey, with the guidance, support, and accountability you need to reach your destination.

This dynamic simulation of a SAG and two ball mills simulates the grinding process of one SAG Mill follwed by two ball mills with a sump, pump and a battery of hydrocyclones. Comminution uses represent 70% of operating Costs in these Grinding Systems
It is interesting to see the effect of the design parameters, kinetics of grinding, separation efficiency and the effect of the sump/pump in the overall optimization of the circuit. These circuits consume large amount of energy. They need to operate at high effectiveness in terms of equipment availability, energy efficiency and water consumption. The water is used to manipulate the trasportation (realogy) of the mills and classification process (particle classification) in hydrocyclone. The grinding process is required to liberate the metal minerals from the gangue prior to flotation or hydrometallurgical processes.
This dynamic mineral flotation model simulates the flotation processes involved in flotation of minerals. It simulates both the froth and pulp phases. The feed can be changed to understand the behavior of the particles and species for optimal separation using air bubbles.
