Pre-Concentration – Maybe Good, Maybe Not

Pre-Concentration – Maybe Good, Maybe Not A while back I wrote a blog titled “Pre-Concentration – Savior or Not?”. That blog was touting the benefits of pre-concentration. More recently I attended a webinar where the presenter stated that the economics of pre-concentration may not necessarily be as good as we think they are. My first thought was “this is blasphemy”. However upon further reflection I wondered if it’s true. To answer that question, I modified one of my old cashflow models from a

Reversing the Trend

by Karen Chovan [https://www.linkedin.com/in/envirointegration], CEO & Founder of Enviro Integration Strategies Inc. The failures and severe consequences of Mount Polley, Samarco, and then Brumadinho, shook our industry, and awoke a much stronger interest in our waste management practices from investors, insurers and society alike. In my opinion, the best “kick in the pants” we needed. In an industry so focused and proud of its safety practices and performance, an industry preaching the Plan D

Generalists vs. Specialists & Collaboration

By Karen Chovan, CEO & Founder of Enviro Integration Strategies Inc. It is exciting to be a part of this new collaboration platform, where each of us can meet, greet and network with others who might help us solve a current or future problem. A chance to dig into the details of a specified technical challenge or rise out of our silos and broaden our thinking. Because we often need to do both – work within our silo with others who can be the only ones to “know” the solution when we are in the we

Heap Leach or CIL or Maybe Both

Heap Leach or CIL or Maybe Both Typically gold mines consist of either a heap leach (HL) operation or a CIL type plant. There are a few projects that operate (or are considering) concurrent heap leach and CIL operations. Ultimately the mineral resource distribution determines if it makes economic sense to have both.  This blog discusses this concept based on past experience. A CIL operation has higher capital and operating costs than a heap leach. However that higher cost is offset by achievin

Mineral Processing – Can We Keep It Dry?

It’s common to see mining conferences present their moderated panels discussing “disruption” and Mining 2.0.   The mining industry is always looking for new technologies to improve the way it operates. Disruptive technologies however require making big changes, not tweaks. True disruption is more than just automating haulage equipment or having new ways to visualize ore bodies in 3D. Insitu leaching is a game changing technology that will eventually make a big difference.  Read a previous blo
