This webinar illustrates the applications of automated mineralogy that provides valuable data for decision making at any stage of a exploration/mining project. Mineralogical data are critical for establishing the potential of an ore deposit. They also dictate the processing route and technologies required for most cost effective and sustainable operation. Automated mineralogy is a tool combining A-SEM or similar techniques to provide information on quantitative mineral proportions their texture, size and exact chemical composition. It can provide information on a grain by grain level with resolution well below 1um and still with high speed of data production. All this in a statistically robust way. Automated mineralogy can be easily tailored for the project stage and requirements. In this webinar, we will cover the basic principals of the A-SEM technologies available, and their application using cases studies. We will also explore the use of AI to produce the data and incorporate them in a geometallurgical framework. The advantages of integration of the automated mineralogy from the early stage though the whole mine lifecycle will be highlighted.


Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the basic principals of the Automated mineralogy technologies and its applications
  • Understand the value of Automated mineralogy in geoscience and mining
