Ausenco’s Chief Technical Officer, Greg Lane features in Austmine’s Next Gen Mine Design eBook. Greg discusses the focus of “next generation” mineral processing plant designs and how they will impact the future of plant design.
Greg Lane believes that the “next generation” of mineral processing plant designs need to focus on improving community acceptability associated with gaining a “licence to operate”, reducing operating costs (including reducing water and energy usage), improving metal recovery and reducing capital costs for plant and infrastructure. In his contribution to the Next Gen Mine Design eBook Greg discusses these elements as well as the process improvements and plant design improvements required to meet these drivers.
The eBook also features a selection of other Austmine’s members’ thought pieces and Q&As.
