Project Evaluation by Resources Gold Technology
The world gold mining industry is a vast repository of technology both old and new combined with a great variety of deposits with differing mineralogy. It is also an industry that attracts great interest from investors to owners and engineers of many disciplines. Gold mining companies across the globe are actively working gold ore on a large scale and employ thousands of workers. In addition, there are many gold mining equipment suppliers throughout the world with a sometimes baffling array of technology on offer for gold mining.
Gold mining is traditionally associated with gold prospecting and lately the large mining operations of today. This can be daunting to a new ore deposit owner looking to enter gold mining or even to more experienced individuals trying to make an educated decision how to proceed. Often owners have a lack of knowledge concerning their ore deposit, mining methods and mineral processing. With the focus on environmental sustainability one of the biggest problems facing owner / operators is how to safely go about processing ore.
The design and construction of the gold processing plant, gold extraction methods used and the gold technology available are critical to correct ore processing. This expertise within the gold industry resides with specialized mineral processing engineers known as Extractive Metallurgists. Already a less known and rare branch of engineering, extractive metallurgy specializes further into individuals experienced in specific minerals and metals such as gold extraction.
Resources Gold Technology
Resources Extraction Metallurgists work closely with clients and geological specialists to analyze the specific characteristics of ore deposits and select the process engineering route best suited to the extraction of gold for the application. This is accomplished systematically using a series of studies for project evaluation.
Project study can involve all or one or more of the following:
Each of these project evaluations focuses on a different aspect of quantifying and determining the technical and financial viability of the project. In most cases, the conclusion of a bankable feasibility study is sufficient for the raising and deployment of finance for a gold project.
