On the path towards Intelligent Mining

Welcome to CASPEO DAYS 2024! We are thrilled to invite members of the international mineral processing and metallurgy communities to our conference, “On the Path Towards Intelligent Mining,” where we will explore the pivotal role of data reconciliation, ensuring a unified and accurate dataset that forms the bedrock of decision-making.

In the mining industry, confronting bad data is a persistent challenge that can hinder progress towards Intelligent Mining. Inaccuracies in measurements and sampling, inconsistent data sources, errors in data collection, undermine the industry’s ability to optimize operations. Together with reliable measurement and sampling practices, the integration of data reconciliation, process simulation, and metallurgical accounting emerges as a powerful trio to overcome these challenges and participate to quality assessment.

Data reconciliation ensures a harmonized and accurate dataset by identifying and rectifying discrepancies in various data sources. Process simulation allows mining companies to create virtual models, enabling them to test different scenarios and optimize operations. Metallurgical accounting adds another layer of precision by meticulously tracking and reporting the flow of materials from mine-to-market. This holistic approach lays the foundation for Intelligent Mining, where the quality of data drive better decision-making, sustainability and operational efficiency.

In addition to two-day conference discussions and insights, we are excited to announce that this event will also serve as a momentous celebration – marking 20 years of CASPEO’s journey in the mining industry. Join us for a friendly “French type” cocktail reception, where we’ll reflect on two decades of accomplishments, milestones, and the collective efforts that have shaped our success. We look forward to combining the spirit of celebration with the forward-looking discussions on building your data framework for the Intelligent Mining.

Abstract & bio

Utilizing BILCO data reconciliation by mass balance software for process plant recommissioning

Process plants are periodically placed on care and maintenance during their lifetime. When these plants restart the production team can look at the restart in two ways: Restart the plant exactly as it was before the shutdown or they utilize the restart as an opportunity to look at potential improvements. During a recent Canadian restart in Northern British Columbia, the process plant team reviewed the restart data and utilized BILCO data reconciliation by mass balance software to make improvements.
The presentation will highlight improvements done to the grinding circuit at this mine utilizing circuit sampling and the information obtained by using BILCO.

Abstracts & bio

Recycling and characterization of spent Printed Circuit Boards – Sampling challenges

Electronic wastes are a valuable resource due to their critical and precious metal content. To include these wastes in recycling chains, it is necessary to precisely determine their metal content. Because analysing the whole sample of a batch of electronic waste is not feasible, different preparation and sampling steps are necessary. They induce an error in the composition of the final sample compared to that of the initial batch, which finally leads to uncertainty in the final metal content measurement.

Anne-Gwénaëlle GUEZENNEC

Senior Researcher in process engineering at BRGM

Abstract & bio

CFD Modelling of bioleaching stirred tank reactors

Among hydrometallurgical processes, bioleaching considers the use of microorganisms in aqueous solution, which reduces production and operating costs while being more environmentally friendly. More particularly, bioleaching in agitated mode using large-scale stirred tank reactors is seen as a process of interest as it may allow a better control of operating conditions and parameters such as physicochemical (temperature, pH, aeration, agitation), biological (microbial consortium) and geometrical parameters (tank, impellers, sparger, baffles).

This process offers an interesting technical alternative to static heap applications , but, till now, due to the large operational and capital expenditures, bioleaching in agitated mode remains mainly limited to the few cases with sufficient high metal value. The generalization of bioleaching stirred tank reactor requires thus further technical optimization to reach its economic viability.

Bioleaching involves particles (ore), a liquid phase (water-like), a gaseous phase (aeration / carbon feed) and microorganisms to ensure the biological reactions. Consequently, the bioleaching process is based on the coupling between a complex gas-liquid-solid hydrodynamics (generated by rotating impellers), chemical and biological reactions.

To describe this complex environment, process modelling and especially computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has proven to be a powerful tool. It allows indeed to access to yet unmeasurable data (particle stress, local turbulent dissipation rates in dense multiphase flows) or to avoid costly experimental campaigns (such as screening of system designs).

Alex THIVIERGE

Co-Founder and Operational Director at JUMINE

Abstracts & bio

Two examples of low hanging fruits: Advanced process control & flotation monitoring

This presentation will cover two examples of process control applications that offer high return on investment with low capital expenditures. The presentation will obviously begin with a quick overview of the process control hierarchy, which will allow situating the two case studies more clearly.

The first one will demonstrate how improving a basic regulatory control system of a grinding circuit can generate a few points of percentage of throughput increase without any expenditure except for engineering time. To do so, basic regulatory control will be compared to decentralized control and to economic model predictive control on a simulated circuit using first principle models.

In a similar fashion, the second case study will also show similar benefits, however, the example will instead focus on flotation monitoring with computer vision. This case study will present actual results obtained with the OptimaVue - Flotation system at a gold mine with bulk sulfide flotation.

Abstract & bio

Process Simulation as a tool for feeding the Life Cycle Assessment of Emerging Technologies for the Production of Mineral Raw Materials

Obtaining the materials required for the energy transition involves implementing circular economy approaches for the transformation of mineral resources and the production of strategic and critical raw materials. Adapting and rethinking current technologies, as well as developing new processes, becomes necessary to achieve the goals set by the EU. This must be done considering not only technical and economic aspects but also potential environmental impacts. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a valuable tool for understanding these impacts and identifying environmental hotspots, which must be considered to enhance the environmental performance of the new processes. However, the data required to obtain reliable results and conclusions are very often not available for these emerging technologies. Process simulation can fill this gap by integrating numerical models for the process units lacking the necessary information. Nonetheless, this requires a careful selection of suitable models for the specific phenomena involved in these new technologies, which are often very complex. Logically, implied hypothesis taken through the use of common models available in process simulation software create uncertainties on the LCA results, which must be taken into account particularly when they are compared to the LCA of current developed processes at the industrial scale. This presentation includes two examples of process development in which process simulation is used to feed LCA of emerging technologies at different Technological Readiness Levels (TRLs) for the treatment of mineral resources and the production of raw materials, including the reprocessing of tailings, and the comparison of their environmental impacts with those of more mature technologies.
