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. Discover how to better manage the risks involved in your production. Time to investigate options to replace your current Excel based metal accounting system with a more robust database?
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 in this course 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.
