Aminpro initiates metallurgical support to Norte Abierto

The Norte Abierto project, located in the Atacama Region, started in 2017 after the merging of Cerro Casale and Caspiche, in order to extract gold and copper on a large scale. Aminpro has started giving technical support via a flotation testing program. The program considers SKT flotation tests for sector-by-sector composites and variability samples, as well as open-cycle and closed-cycle test ...

Aminpro improves its Pilot Plant

At Aminpro we have a complete pilot plant for mineral processing, including crushing, milling, flotation and thickening operations. Our flotation cells are modified square Denver cells, with capacities ranging from 80L for the rougher stage, to 5L to the cleaner. During 2021, we have been modifying and improving our flotation cells in order to enhance our capacity to float coarse and heavy m ...

LEIT test at Aminpro

At Aminpro we perform the LEIT: Low Energy Impact Test). This impact test is based on the crushability test developed by Bond, which allows the calculation of the actual power requirements for crushing in terms of the ImpactWork index. The equipment consists of two pendulum-mounted hammers that simultaneously and evenly hit the rock sample. The LEIT test is performed on ten or more representati ...

Many talk about Geometallurgy – At Aminpro we do Geometallurgy

What is Geometallurgy? Geometallurgy is a discipline that combines geology, mining and metallurgy, in order to generate models to predict the metallurgical response of the minerals prior to their extraction. These models allow establishing business optimization strategies with a holistic view of the process, in contrast to the classical approach that optimized the mining and metallurgical proce ...

Did you know that Aminpro conducts Cobalt metallurgical tests?

Cobalt is a relatively scarce ferromagnetic metal, mainly used in high-performance super alloys and in the glass and ceramic industries, providing a distinctive blue color. However, its importance today lies in its use for the manufacture of battery electrodes for electric cars, which has increased its demand and price  considerably, reaching today a value of US$ 33,000 per tonne, after a historic ...
