The intent of this course is that after participating in this lifelong learning programme, professionals can contribute to the development of more efficient and better-controlled ore beneficiation processes, which have less environmental impact.

The solution (technology)

This project will develop an advanced level, practical training program. The target learners are professionals working in the mining sector. The learning objective is for professionals to gain an advanced understanding of the practical issues as well as a theory concerning the design and upscaling of ore beneficiation processes; and, how design and upscaling relates to the operations and economics of mineral processing plants. The course will make extensive use of state-of-the-art simulations and pilot facilities.
