Course: metallurgical accounting

Every mineral processing plant ranging from concentrators to smelters and hydrometallurgical refineries, has production reporting obligations. Among them, metal accounting requires to get a complete picture on plant performance. Learn in this metallurgical accounting course how to implement an accurate accounting system complying with the AMIRA code. Better manage the risks involved in your production.

Achieve operational excellence by performing metallurgical calculations

A metallurgical accounting system is the key tool for determining the real performance of concentrators, smelters and hydrometallurgical refineries. Such a system covers the full production process from the mine to the final product.

Learn the main principles of a metal accounting system and the best practice recommended by the AMIRA P754 code. Discover a practical approach for the implementation of a complete metallurgical technical and financing system from the data acquisition and the determination of measurement errors to the different options for stocks determination.
