Venture The strategic innovation programme for mining and metal recovery – STRIM

Purpose and goal

Project aims to develop an integrated modelling and simulation environment for conducting comprehensive model-based prognosis for the beneficiation of primary mineral resources

Expected results and effects

Project will deliver an integrated modelling and simulation environment to enable reliable prognosis on the beneficiation of primary mineral resources. The developed system will improve primary resource utilization, reduce waste fractions and emissions, and enables more energy and water efficient processing.

Planned approach and implementation

The project will be organized in five technical work packages plus the project management activities: 1)Deposit modeling for different ore types and geometallurgical domains 2)Modeling of crushing and grinding processes 3)Modeling of concentration processes 4)Setup of simulation environment 5)Case studies
