MRI to sort out copper mining waste

4-7-2018Sorting out waste rock, significantly reduces the energy and water needed for processing and associated carbon emissions. By illuminating batches of ore with short pulses of radio waves, magnetic resonance penetrates through copper ores – much like medical MRI "sees into" human bodies – to rapidly and accurately detect ore quality.

Waste rock and tailings – Waihi Gold

In many mines throughout the world, waste rock and tailings are disposed of separately to form waste dumps and tailings dams. At Waihi the situation is unusual, in that waste rock is used to form engineered embankments that are progressively raised in order to 'keep up' with tailings production.

Copper Mining and Processing: Processing of Copper

The first steps of copper processing are the same for both ores: mining and transporting. Copper mining is usually performed using open-pit mining, in which a series of stepped benches are dug deeper and deeper into the earth over time. To remove the ore, boring machinery is used to drill holes into the hard rock, and explosives are inserted

Office of Wastewater Management

Waste Rock Definition The primary and most prevalent waste generated by many mining operations is waste rock, or overburden. Waste rock, which consists of rock and target minerals in concentrations too low for economic recovery, is removed along with the ore.

Tailings, Waste and Environmental Management

Waste Rock and Overburden: Waste rock and overburden, which is material that is removed to access ores, coal and oil sands, typically contain trace amounts of naturally occurring metals and other constituents. The bulk of waste rock from our operations is placed in areas that are specifically designed to contain the rock.

Use ore sorting equipment to concentrate ores and cut

By using ore sorting equipment, ore concentrates can be created at very low cost in small or remote mining installations. The entire processing line can be planned in semi-mobile form and consists only of crushers, screens, belts and sorting machines. This allows immense cost savings for transport, since the waste rock is disposed of on-site.

MINING

Mining and processing minerals (separating useful products from waste) needs some really big toys! Mining techniques Drills are used to analyse rocks and load explosives. Explosives are the most common way to excavate rock. Excavators move the excavated rock to trucks. Large excavators used in open-pit mines can hold 70 tonnes of rock.

LECTURE 4: MINING WASTE

Waste rock. Waste rock is the rock that is excavated to reach the ore. The amount of waste rock that needs to be removed depends on the geometry and location of the ore body, along with the mining method used and the composition and stability of the rocks. The ratio between waste rock and ore production is called the stripping ratio.
