Dealing with low-grade ore – Process productivity

Mining, handling and processing low-grade ore in mining and mineral processing operations is resulting in higher costs and lower profits. While this is a widely acknowledged issue, solutions have so far been limited. New technologies now being developed are giving operators options to divert low-grade ore at multiple stages of their operation.

TORO BUOYED BY HIGHER GRADES AND LOWER

The increases to average mining grades, together with reductions in strip ratio and waste mined may have a material positive impact on the economics of Wiluna. “These results show that Wiluna can produce uranium concentrate at lower overall costs,” Dr Guthrie said.

Large Low Grade Copper-Gold Deposits: How Low Can

The point is that large, disseminated, copper-gold systems can be profitable at very low grades. The investor therefore needs to know the style of mineralisation and the potential size of the deposit in addition to grades. Conversely, narrow, discontinuous, but high grade deposits may require a very high cut-off grade to be economically mined.

Cyanide Use in Gold Mining - Earthworks

Cyanide's efficiency makes mining more wasteful. Because cyanide leaching is very efficient, it allows profitable mining of much lower ore grades. Mining lower grade ore requires the extraction and processing of much more ore to get the same amount of gold. Partially due to cyanide, modern mines are. much larger than before cyanide was used;
