Gold Processing Technology
Project Number: P420H
Status: Open to sponsors
Amira Program Manager: Anil Subramanya
P420 has a long and valuable history of delivering new data, technology, and knowledge to the gold mining sector over 27 years.
The current iteration of the series, P420H, is supported by companies in Australasia, North America and South Africa.
Where does the future lie? – P420H!
This is a valuable opportunity to join Amira Global and our collaborative partners the Gold Technology Group (GTG), Curtin University to actively participate in the future of applied gold research.
More details about P420H
The P420H project aims to continue support of the gold industry in achieving operating excellence despite the challenges, both continuing and emerging, being encountered by the industry today:
- Human resources are still the key to successful operation, yet skilled gold metallurgists are in short supply.
- Large high grade, free-milling deposits are becoming less common, and companies are turning to difficult to process (i.e. lower grade, complex and refractory) orebodies to maintain reserves.
- The tools to evaluate, optimise and predict performance are limited for dealing with anything other than well-established technologies or simple free-milling orebodies.
The GTG has a long history of Amira collaborative projects related to the gold industry and will be leading P420H. GTG is a research group, primarily funded by industry, at the Western Australian School of Mines: Mining, Energy and Chemical Engineering, Curtin University in Perth, Australia.
Benefits to Sponsors
Sponsors of the P420 series of Gold Technology projects continue to benefit from the applied research provided by the Gold Technology Group. These include:
- Training of personnel via site visits and online courses
- Benchmarking studies of operational plant
- De-bottlenecking and optimisation of plant parameters
- Development and evaluation of new technology
- Access to SIMCIL models which are continuously developed and improved
- Research on new methods of processing increasingly complex gold ore
