Potential Cost Savings from Agglomeration Optimization in Copper Mining

Using real-time spectroscopic technology with appropriate calibration modeling, acid and water additions can be more closely controlled to optimize the agglomeration and heap leaching processes. Real-time spectroscopic technology is now available for installation directly over the conveyor belt feeding the agglomeration process for copper production. The TerraSpec® 4 line of mineral analyzers provide valuable real-time information using fast, reliable measurements to feed data back into the process for better decision-making and cost savings by minimizing acid costs, and maximizing metal yield, with multiple constituents monitored simultaneously through one instrument or system.
