Geometallurgy (lump & fines hematite processing)

Geometallurgy is the inclusion of metallurgical test results together with traditional analytical and geological data in mine resource modelling. This statistical analysis provides a more holistic picture of the resource including processing and handling. Few other resource sectors have embraced geometallurgy more than the iron ore majors. One of the most important statistical parameters of hematite direct shipping ores (DSO) is the ratio of lump (+6mm rocks) to that of fines content (<6mm particles) and all of the material characteristics of the two fractions. At the Iron Ore Technical Centre in Wangara, Western Australia, ALS has an entire laboratory and expert team of metallurgists and technicians devoted to this area of metallurgy.
