Purpose and goal
The project aims at developing an integrated modelling and simulation environment for conducting comprehensive model-based prognosis for the beneficiation of primary mineral resources.
Structure and implementation
The project will be organised in five technical work packages plus the project management activities: 1) Deposit modeling for different ore types and geometallurgical domains. 2) Modeling of crushing and grinding processes. 3) Modeling of concentration processes. 4) Setup of simulation environment. 5) Case studies.
The project will deliver an integrated modelling and simulation environment to enable reliable prognosis on the beneficiation of primary mineral resources. The developed system will improve primary resource utilisation, reduce waste fractions and emissions, and enable more energy and water efficient processing.
