PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BBA analyzed various solutions for increasing cleaning system capacity on days when volume exceeds a predetermined volume due from variations in mine-run grade.

 

BBA also performed a techno-economic study, including: 

  • Added economic capacity required by the cleaning circuit
  • Profits quantified in terms of the grade variability of copper intake
  • Extrapolation of variability to future mine plans
  • System configuration and possible locations pour installation
  • Preliminary estimate for new equipment installation
