Abstract [en]

Higher environmental and socio-economic demands in the exploitation of the future mineral resources require comprehensive knowledge on ore bodies even in the early stages of the mining process. Geometallurgy combines geological and mineral processing information to create a spatial model for production planning and management. Applying a geometallurgical concept improves resource efficiency, reduces operational risks and helps in optimising production in such a way that sustainability and socio-economic factors also are considered. With a geometallurgical model it is possible to study different production scenario starting from exploration to the feasibility and production stages. There are some alternative ways for building a geometallurgical model but the mineralogical approach is generic and can be adopted to any kind of mineral resources. This paper describes how a concept like this has been used in the mining industry and demonstrates the benefits in terms of improved resource efficiency in different ore deposits.
