Processing

Haul trucks transport the ore from open pit operations to processing operations.

Some ores may be stockpiled for later processing. Rock that is not economical to mine is stored in waste rock storage areas.

The grade and type of ore determine the processing method used. Additionally, the geochemical makeup of the ore, including its hardness, sulfur content, carbon content and other minerals found within, impact the cost and methods used to extract base metals.

We feed ore into a series of crushers and grinding mills to reduce the size of the ore particles and expose the mineral. Water is also added which turns the ore into a slurry.
