metallurgical test work, metallurgical accounting, environmental management and other aspects of practical extractive metallurgy.
• Covers the key concepts of: mineral processing - evaluation of new resources - ore processing - particle technology - mineral
beneficiation and extraction -purification and recovery processes - environmental management - plant optimisation - process economy -
typical processes for major commodities - final products.
