Aminpro begins a big iron ore geometallurgical project

A big iron ore mine from the north of Chile has hired Aminpro to carry out test work that will define the first geometallurgical model for iron ore in Chile. The program considers over 7000 Davis tube tests, over 700 hardness tests such as Bond tests and SMC, and over 200 magnetic separation tests using a wet drum separator. This project occurs amid the recent increase of the iron price, bei ...

The importance of laboratory tests

Laboratory tests are crucial to characterize the mineral to be processed, in order to identify early opportunities for improvement and possible technical challenges, such as the presence of clays, complex gangues, changes in the grade, mineralogy, hardness, liberation, etc. The early detection of these problems allows the definition of processing strategies, reduces operational risk and technica ...

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 ...
