Presentacion Aminpro Procemin 2

Aminpro is at Procemin-Geomet 2020

Aminpro is part of Procemin-Geomet 2020, represented by Diego Mesa, our R&D Specialist, and Patricio Berríos, Chief of Engineering and Quality. This Thursday 26th of November they will be participating in the panel “Mineral Processing – Data analytics, modelling and optimisation”, where they’ll be answering questions about the work titled “Reprocessing of historic tailings – three Chilean case studies”.

In this work, they analysed the conceptual engineering of three Chilean projects that involve the reprocessing of tailings, and on which Aminpro was hired as consultants. Different problems and strategies are evaluated, considering particle size, pH, reagents and even different concentration methods such as flotation (for primary and secondary copper) and magnetic concentration (for a magnetite concentration project). The results are discussed from a metallurgical and economic perspective, using the software Aminfloat.

You can download the paper here, and watch the video-presentation next (video presented in Spanish).

Aminpro presented at Procemin Geomet 2019

Aminpro is well known for being an innovative company, where research and development of new metallurgical methodologies, equipment, tests and protocols are of great importance.

Given that, 2 of our engineers presented research works at Procemin Geomet 2019, which took place at the Sheraton Hotel in Chile last week. In that international conference, we presented two works related to milling and flotation process.

Aminpro’s participation began on the Thursday 21st of Novembre, with the presentation of Patricio Berrio, Chief of Engineering, titled “The MiniBond test: description, calibration and sources of error”.

The MiniBond offers a more accessible alternative for the generation of geometallurgical data, allowing to include the Bond Work Index in the block models at a lower cost and in less time than the standard Bond test

.On Friday, our Senior Engineer David Barriga presented the work titled “Pilot-scale of Cu-Mo separation as a tool for industrial plant design”, showing the benefits of carrying out pilot-scale tests to compare with the simulation data, in order to generate a better industrial plant design

Pilot-scale tests allow to reduce the risk and uncertainty related to the construction and operation of new industrial plants
