Geometallurgical applications for sorting by surface analysis: review of status (2016 - 2017)$42,600
The project aims to assess the underlying opportunities for using surface methods in measuring ore moving on a belt to control sorting opportunities. It addresses the potential problems associated with rapid motion, irregular topography and dust distribution. It also considers opportunities to get by size sorting information from the data.These procedures already exist at varying levels from TRL stage 2 through to stage 4. The outcome of this proposal is to:a)Assess the advantages and disadvantages for each method including where in an ore sorting environment they are most competitiveb)suggest designs for a series of test that would move the most applicable methods to at least stage 5. to look for opportunities to maximise value in these methods.
