Answering Process Industry Questions
ITHACA has been used as a consulting tool since 2012. Here are summaries of some of these projects.
The new owner of a mine site had significant legacy environmental issues to remedy prior to restarting the mine and process plant. Chief among these was how to manage several gigalitres of contaminated water held in a disused pit while at the same time using the pit to store newly generated tailings slurry. Weather events were also a source of concern due to the total catchment area draining into the pit far exceeding the free liquid surface area available for evaporation.
Core Metallurgy was commissioned to design, construct and operate a pilot-scale Toowong Process™ plant in 2012. The process removes arsenic from copper concentrates, increasing the concentrate’s value as a source of copper metal and reducing its environmental impact during subsequent processing. Core needed to be sure that the sampling schedule and control philosophy applied to the plant would not compromise results at this small scale.
