The focus of this volume is on advances in current gold plant operation, from conception to closure; each chapter or section also covers innovations at the bench and pilot-scale level that would be expected to find commercial application at some stage. Coverage is also given to the chemistry and engineering aspects. Contributions have been put together by a global network of experts in the field.
The general principle behind the structure of the volume is that of flowsheeting based on unit operations and applied to a mineralogical classification of gold ore types. From concept to closure, this book covers all unit operations, mineralogies and processes that are relevant to dealing with today’s complex orebodies.
