This 2 volume set is an up-to-date reference based on 138 proceedings papers from the October 2002, Mineral Processing Plane Design, Control and Practice Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was the first conference to comprehensively address plant design and operation issues in more than a decade. This indispensable resource covers all aspects of plant design-- from concept to pilot plant to full-scale production. Valuable guidance is provided on overall project management, and on the design, optimization, and control of all related processes. This will become the new standard text for university in instruction and a valuable guidebook for operators considering new construction, revations, or expansions. Most of all, it's a practical, quick reference for engineers, consultants, suppliers, manufacturers, etc. Papers are divided into the following easy-to-reference sections: Sampling; Bench-Scale and Pilot Plant Testwork; Financial and Feasibility Studies; Models and Simulators for Selection, Sizing, and Design; Comminution (Crushing and Grinding); Size Separation; Solid-Solid Separation; Flotation; Solid-Liquid Separation; Pumping, Material Transport, Drying and Storage; Pre-Oxidation; Leaching and Adsorption Circuits; Extraction; Bullion Production and Refining; Tailings Disposal, Wastewater Disposal, and the Environment; Construction Materials for Equipment and Plants; Power, Water, and Support Facilities; Process Control and Instrumentation; Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Management; Start-Ups, Commissioning, and Training; Case Studies.
