A comprehensive and authoritative look and the latest thinking in minerals processing plant design and operations from the mining industry’s leading engineers, consultants, and operators. The 138 papers cover all aspects of plant design—from concept to pilot plant to full-scale production.
In addition to valuable guidance on overall project management, papers address the design, optimization, and control of all related processes, including crushing and grinding, separation, flotation, pumping and material transport, pre-oxidation, extraction, and proper disposal of by-products and tailings. Mineral Processing Plant Design, Practice, and Control is a new standard text for university-level instruction and a valuable guidebook for operators considering new construction, plant renovations, or expansions.
Most of all, it’s a practical, quick reference for engineers, consultants, suppliers, manufacturers, or anyone involved in the design or operation of a minerals processing plant.
