Process engineering study with options for a platinum refinery
Our brief was to develop the flowsheets and mass balances (metal recoveries and volumes), and calculate the capital and operating costs for five different flowsheet options for a platinum-group metals refinery. The client was under pressure, and the project was completed in record time.
Zinc recovery improvement on a flotation plant
Our brief was to improve the recovery of zinc on a plant. We used our methodology based on the theory of constraints to determine the best course of action, and achieved a measureable improvement in recovery by using a combination of control and process changes.
Blast optimisation study
Our brief was to develop a methodology for blast optimisation, which is also called mine-to-mill optimization. We surveyed previous case studies, distilled the essential steps and recommended the required methodology.
