The iMin(mineral) package provides an accessible platform for mining and minerals processing operations to establish capability for routine mineralogical analysis on-site.
It utilises a model of upskilling site metallurgists in day-to-day operation of the mineralogy program and undertaking basic template reporting, while remote subject matter experts routinely review data generated and undertake more advanced analysis and reporting functions.
The package is offered using the Zeiss MinSCAN ruggedized SEM based automated mineralogy system.
The iMin(mineral) package is provided as an all-in equipment, service and data analysis program offered as a monthly fee to the operation. This allows sites to run the operational mineralogy program as an operating cost, closely integrated with their day-to-day continuous improvement and optimisation programs.
An iMin(Mineral) package provides opportunity for operations to build operational mineralogy capability on-site, immediate benefits include:
Whole of operation performance trending
Link to mine plan for fully predictive forecasting
Robust reconciliation with mine plan
On-site mineralogy setup and service
Remote expert support
Continuous improvement and decision support for process optimisation
iMin(mineral) has been focused on providing a solution that upskills site personnel and provides adequate remote expert support to drive genuine value from the mineralogical information generated.
