Scope of Work

Ten different Limn flowsheets were developed, incorporating two and three stage crushing, wet de-sliming and ombinations of different products. The flowsheets included scoping study level of accuracy and level mass balances. Model Users Manual was also supplied as a deliverable.


Notable Feature

The flowsheets adopted unit processing models as defined by the client, and were mass balanced for comparison of product rate generation.



Delivery of working mass balance models to allow scenario analysis for optimal circuit configuration selection.
