Series: Developments in Mineral Processing

A contribution by a global network of experts in the field to documenting current and future practice in gold ore processing, the focus of this volume is on advances in current gold plant operation, from conception to closure. Each chapter covers innovations at the bench and pilot-scale level that would be expected to find commercial application at some stage.
