STOICISM presented in GeoMet 2016 conference in Perth, Australia

    19/06/2016

    Prof. Hylke Glass (University of Exeter), as partner of the STOICISM consortium, presented the key note speech “Geometallurgy: driving innovation in the mining value chain” at the 3rd AusIMM International Geometallurgy conference” that took place on 15 - 17 of June 2016 in Perth (Australia). His contribution discussed geometallurgy as a promotor of the smart use of raw materials and resources through better allocation of the resource to processing options and products. The focus of the research is on the integrated analysis and control of the entire mining chain, influencing the characterisation of the deposit, mine planning, process control, waste utilisation, and energy use. Innovations in the field of sensors and data processing are helping to shape the potentially far-ranging implications of geometallurgy. 
    The GeoMet 2016 conference is organised by Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) and is a multidisciplinary event addressing geometallurgy, mineralogical data, mining, metallurgy, Earth science, and minerals. 
    With around 150 participants from 10 countries, the audience is a networking opportunity for geologists, engineers, metallurgists, environmental scientists, mineral economists as well as risk specialists covering different raw materials.
