Geometallurgy - COPPER 2022

Technical Program Symposium

Geometallurgy

The Symposium on Geometallurgy will focus on aspects related to process definitions driven by geological and/or mineralogical constraints, mine planning, and design features. The development and the evaluation of the process value chain using geometallurgy will be an essential piece of this Symposium. Presentations will as well be welcomed related to projects/operations, shoving a significant impact of these issues on business evaluation. Low-grade projects, restricted operational conditions, and complex mineral deposits evaluated through Geometallurgy are examples of projects of interest for the Symposium.

Topics could include, but are not restricted to:

• Mine-Plant value chain modeling, conciliation, and validation through geometallurgy
• Geometallurgical models developed using data analytics techniques
• Non-traditional pre-concentration and alternative processes towards business optimization
• Geometallurgical aspects in tailings
