  • Finding a 77% mining project value improvement Snowden

    Nov 04, 2015· In a previous post we described the Theory of Constraints (TOC) and its potential to benefit mining projects as an “out of the box” way of thinking. This article provides a case study of how TOC can be used to drive mining project value improvements for a nickel laterite project. In this case mining is carried out with conventional truck and shovel methods and the ore is processed using a

  • Beneficiation Wikipedia

    In the mining industry or extractive metallurgy, beneficiation is any process that improves (benefits) the economic value of the ore by removing the gangue minerals, which results in a higher grade product (concentrate) and a waste stream ().There are many different types of beneficiation, with each step furthering the concentration of the original ore
