:: MinAssist: Leading the Development of Geometallurgy
MinAssist has long been a supporter of the value that geometallurgical principles can bring in project development and operation. We have been involved with a number of geometallurgical development projects and clearly recognise the need for efficient processes in the approach to geometallurgy.
In October 2013 our Principal, Dr Will Goodall was asked by the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) at the University of Queensland to lead development of the project extension proposal for the AMIRA P843 Geometallurgical Mine Mapping and Modelling (GeMIII) program. This is a wonderful opportunity to provide leadership in the development of geometallurgy research and opens an exciting new chapter for MinAssist in our support driving the minerals industry forward.
Over the last few months Dr Goodall has been working closely with researchers and industry stakeholders to develop a program for geometallurgy research that will provide tangible benefits for the industry and establish geometallurgy principles as key decision-making tools in project development and operation. The program is to be focused on bringing geometallurgy into operational decision making through better integration with the production scheduling process and represents an exciting new phase in geometallurgical research.
