Practical solutions for mine tailings and water - session 2
Dry stacking successes?
Water efficiency is not the only driver for dry stacking. Several gold producers are implementing dry stacking in Artic environments where the sites are water positive to achieve minimum environmental impact and minimise the risk of tails spills. Climatic conditions change some of the stacking logistics. We look at some of the more recent mine sites to embrace filtered tailings
Combining mine backfill and dry stacking is an attractive option for some sites, how to balance the demands of different systems.
Reliability focus on critical tailings filtration infrastructure, in dry stack operations maintenance can be a labour-intensive operation and good planning is essential to achieve the best availability and keep control of costs

What is the single most important parameter in successful running of the furnace?
Learn how to improve safety, reduce metal losses to slag, avoid refractory wear and save on operating cost by controlling the temperature of the Flash Furnace in a smart way.
Metso Outotec Precious Metals (PM) refining technologies cover the full range of process steps and material-handling streams, starting from diverse high-grade PMs containing materials or concentrates, e.g. copper anode slime, etc. to fine bars and granules of 4N gold and silver. This webinar introduces Metso Outotec technologies of processing copper anode slime to recover and refine PMs as well as other valuable metals.
Environmental requirements in industry are tightening globally nowadays. This affects also smelting industry and sets new, tighter demands for electric furnace gas handling systems. Most important requirements for electric furnace gas handling are safety, reliability and environmental requirements. In this webinar we discuss how to respond to renewed gas handling requirements maintaining operational and safety aspects.
This webinar will cover recent developments and ongoing intensification of the Outotec Ausmelt TSL Process for treatment of zinc-containing feeds with the goal of reducing the carbon footprint, CAPEX and OPEX associated with the processing of these materials. The operating philosophy, equipment updates and selected results from demonstration of the proposed process improvements will be covered along with a comparison to other processing routes.

Digitalization has been a topic in most board rooms for many years already and it has slowly transformed from thoughts to actions even in the metals production industry. In this webinar we will discuss how we built our journey towards a fully automated smelter and show examples of intelligent sensors and advanced process control and the value these solutions have been able to generate at operating plants.

На вебинаре мы сделаем обзор технологий по обезвоживанию хвостов и управлению хвостовым хозяйством, подробно рассмотрим внедрение решений в производственный процесс, обсудим технические преимущества различных технологических подходов и поделимся информацией об успешном применении технологий Outotec на производствах в разных странах мира.
Electronic scrap is a rapidly growing type of waste material that is representing an increasing challenge for society to manage. For smelters though, it can represent a valuable feedstock due to its high content of gold and other valuable metals. This webinar looks at the special processing considerations in treating this kind of material due to the physical and chemical differences compared with copper and gold primary concentrates.
Hemos desarrollado un plan de cinco pasos para implementar mejoras que varían las velocidades de rotación, utilizando experimentos de diseño para recopilar datos.
Estos datos se utilizan en un proceso de simulación que a la vez evalua el potencial de cada celda de flotación. Como resultado se obtiene un óptimo rendimiento utilizando la menor cantidad de energía posible.

Kaj Jansson, Head of Industrial Water Treatment Solutions
The topic in focus will be on monitoring and controlling mine site water balance from both external and internal viewpoints. This helps the sites to move towards more water-saving mode, understand what kind and volumes of waters are flowing around in the mine sites and the concentrator plant. With online reporting, visual layout, alarm functions and possibilities to make the offline water connection to test different water scenarios it will give valuable information on the everyone's sites and easies down workloads related to reporting and water simulations.
Ari Rantala, Director – Automation and Digital Solutions
The topic in focus will be on metallurgical digital twins for mineral processing plants and options for exploiting them for improving and optimizing operations efficiency and transparency. Outotec will discuss and present some of the advanced tools that can be smoothly used to develop a metallurgical digital twin, connect it to real plant and how
it can be applied to benefit daily process optimization tasks together with for example advanced process control, reporting and forecasting tasks.
We have developed a five-step plan to implement improvements that vary rotation speeds using design experiments to gather data. This data is used to provide a simulation process to assess the potential of each flotation cell to provide optimal performance using minimal energy.
In most mining operations, achieving and/or exceeding production targets is an important measure of success. Equipment availability and efficiency greatly contributes to these targets, with best performance obtained through routine preventative maintenance. This webinar focuses on flotation, where we share sites with good maintenance practices and associated revenue benefits. We also identify the equipment that requires routine maintenance, plus recommended inspection practices.
Optimize flotation cell froth carry rates, lip loading properties, and mass pull stability with our custom-designed froth recovery set-up. The optimal launder and crowder design helps you maximize your flotation cell performance and achieve your grade and recovery targets.
